Back to Black twinchies

So as per usual I made twinchies for the coin swap peeps… and kept to the same Back to Black theme. This first set of four was using black cardstock and the baked texture embossing powder in Deep Sea to add the dictionary stamping in the background and the butterfly embellishment. Also added the punched leaf from black cardstock and kept it plain as contrast. Then edged the pieces in black embossing powder to finish off.

Second set of four was another scrap piece of black cardstock and this time heat embossed with the handcarved stamp although didn’t ink it fully so it meant it was more of a loose stamping.Then I heat embossed the white splodges on top. Next I coated some cardstock with sparks paint and then heat embossed one of the Watercolour wings stamps before using a punch to punch out the butterfly.

I then used the Tap Tap Tap sentiment which I heat embossed in white and then finished the twinchies off with white gel pen doodles.Pictures don’t really show the sparkle and shine on these but they are fab in real life.Then another pair of twinchies…

Next a set of six…More embossing and this time one embossed background with white craft ink stamped and embossed which created cool effect on the leaves. Then punched and stamped butterflies on top.

Next up a set of eight. Again an embossed background this time using the world map stamp and then the simply sketched leaves using different powders.I found a butterfly in a magazine stamp set and embossed them onto the black card using white powder.Finally two using scraps of patterned paper, and embossed flower and embossed details on punched butterflies.Some fun twinchies … all back to black but also with butterflies thrown in for this month’s theme too!

Happy crafting!

Catch up from Tuesdays art journalling session

Hi

Whilst I may be back in the craft room I am far from back in the usual creative place due to a zillion things going on for me at the moment.  I was really happy to spend some time creating with my friends on Tuesday night in my junk journal and so can share with you what I made.

I managed two pages both for the theme of Wishes.

First a fairy page…

Just love the beautiful gold and rich colour tones with the little fairies.

This is also a lovely page and really happy with how this worked and came together quite quickly. 

Hoping to grab some crafting time in the room soon and get myself back into the zone properly.  I also have a new obsession that I will share with you soon… bullet journalling… couldn’t be more different than this mixed media art but it is my current obsession. Anyway more about that another time.

Happy crafting!

Catherine
