Twinchies Midway Reminder - Summer at the Seaside


A reminder to all you twinchie fans that The Show Us Your Twinchies Challenge this month is "Summer at the Seaside", you still have until the end of the month to enter so go on "Show Us Your Twinchies"!

Following the theme here are three twinchies made using a Machael Powell stamp and coloured with promarkers and DIs.


The stamp was inked with black Stazon and each twinchie placed on the stamp in the area I wanted, DIs were used to colour the background and the huts and scenery were coloured with Promarkers.   I have recently been asked what do I do with the my winchies when they are completed, sometimes they are used to make cards and  I thought these three twinchies would be ideal to put in a frame to make a seaside picture so this is what I ended up with.











 



















Next month  in the midway reminder post I will show you some other ideas for using your twinchies,  I look forward to seeing all your twinchies on the challange, give it a go twinchies are addictive once you start making them.

Its a big hello from me - Show Us Your Twinchies New Challenge


 
 A few weeks ago we were very sad to tell all you loyal followers that we were closing the challenge blog due to other commitments. Since then, and after careful consideration I (Sylv) have decided to try keep the challenge running.  Easier said than done, this month has been hectic with work and other commitments so I know why the other girls had to step down.  I have not had the time to alter the blog and get the challenge up and running until today so here I am determined to sort something out and get a challenge out there for you to join in with.  Unfortunately no prizes but I will pick a winner and a top three and there will be a badge for your blog.

Here we go, this month the theme is Summer at the Seaside, so come on girls let me see your twinchies and tell your friends, followers and blogland about the challenge and point them in my direction.

Just for anyone visiting who does not know what a twinchie is, it is a two inch by two inch piece of artwork, you can use any technique or materials as long as the finished item is two inch by two inch.  Here are a few samples to give you an idea.

The challenge will run from 1st June and finish at 9.00 am UK time 30th June.  Add Your Challenge Entry Here.
