Midway Reminder - In An English Country Garden


Good morning twinchie fans, followers and friends, we are halfway through challenge number 7 and here are a few more twinchies with the "In An English Country Garden" theme just to encourage you to have a go and enter a twinchie or two in the challenge.

Afternoon Tea on the Lawn

This takes me back to when the children were young and we had tea in the garden on sunny days.
The Potting Shed 

A must for any English Country Garden, full of pots, seeds and compost ready for planting up in spring.

Using Your Twinchies on Cards

Here are a few ideas for using twinchies on your cards, a great idea as you get the pleasure of making the twinchies and someone else gets the pleasure when they receive the card from you.   Below is a quick note card made using one of the tea time twinchies.  I used a bought card blank and attached some patterned paper (free pad from a mag) which had been distressed and coloured slightly with broken china distress ink, the edges were sewn round and a Marianne doily die placed in the center, the twinchie was attached to the doily - a quick and easy note card.

Here is another card where the full image was stamped onto a ready made card blank, the bee coloured and the rest of the image left black and white. A stamped and water coloured twinchie was mounted with 3D sticky pads onto the full stamped image, the twinchie and the bee were highlighted with glossy accents. The edge of the card was coloured with distress ink in worn lipstick.

Another quick and simple card.

I hope this has encouraged you to have a go, twinchies are quick and easy to make, so whether  you are an experienced twinchie fan, or a novice, get out those 2 inch x 2 inch scraps of card and make a twinchie or two.
