So the artist trading coins swaps have all been posted off and I can now share the twinchies I made to accompany them! Last month I underestimated the number who would join in and had to make a few more last minute. This time I decided to go with 20! Spoiler alert it wasn’t enough!
I created a distress oxide panel and then cut it into 20 1.75inch squares. Then I used two Tim Holtz stamps to create the images.
I love that these stamps are the perfect size for this!
Once stamped I edged each one with the black soot ink to give it a finished appearance. Next I cut the twinchies from pink and blue cardstock so I could create 4 sets of 5.
I layered them up and then stamped the sentiment using alphas and cut each one out. I stuck them down and then edged the sentiment in black pen. Next I added black enamel dots on each one.
Love how these all look. And that they were quite simple to achieve.
I think using the different coloured cardstock also helped bring out the different colours of the ink in the background.
Now as I said above it turned out 20 was not enough…
… there were an amazing 25 artists joining me on the swap… the basket was full of lovely coins by the time I got to the end of the month…
… so another 5 twinchies had to be made …
I chose to use some scraps of backgrounds that were on my desk and the Badass artchick girl image to make the remaining 5 twinchies.
