Did somebody say Twinkie?!


Stamps: Turtle and HI! from Inky Antics
Paper: All SU!; Red Ridinghood; Kiwi Kiss; Chocolate Chip; Bella Rosa DSP
Ink: Staz On Black; Red Ridinghood; Kiwi Kiss; Going Gray; Pink Pirouette; Creamy Caramel
Other: antique brass hodgepodge; Ivory pearls.; caramel gingham



Nah! no twinkies! But Anna Wight mentioned TWINCHIES. A big brother to the currently popular inchie. I didn't even know last night that I was making an twinchie, (hmmm...that sounds precarious!), but I was. I was making this patch work card for a card challenge on a group and added this 2"x2" turtle to finish it off. And 2"x2" qualifies as a Twinchie.
I am pretty happy with how my patchwork turned out. I distress all the edges. I wanted it to have the worn shabby chic look. The card measures 5"x5". And the little patches are 1.25" sq. each. When it was done, I had no idea wat image to put on top...I didn't want to cover up all my pretty squares. And literally this turtle just fell out of my stamps. Works for me! I colored him with SU! reinkers.
I added a couple of self adhesive ivory pearls to the flower centers. here is a close up. You can click on any pic to see it large.


I hope that every had a fun and sunny weekend!
