Pinky Twinchies

Craft packages ordered =2, craft packages received =0

So today I have wasted an awful lot of time (painting a pumpkin white since you ask!) getting nowhere craft wise. I have managed to complete a project in readiness for the Gecko Galz Blog Hop next weekend but other than that I haven’t achieved as much as I’d hoped. Plus, having left my crafty space very tidy yesterday, I’ve got one mighty mess to clear up in a minute or two. I’m particularly cross with myself because I missed the light which means my photo’s don’t really capture how pretty these twinchies are:

The one on the left is for the challenge over at Twinchies Challenge Blog which this month has the theme Pink. My friend Dionne reminded me that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so these twinchies are in support of that and of course I can’t do a butterfly project without mentioning Amy and Friends.

I created the twinchie bases by dusting on Victorian Velvet, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry distress inks. Then I stamped a script, using Worn Lipstick followed by some blossoms, using Picked Raspberry. This gives a lovely layered look which I’m sorry you can’t see more clearly. On one of the squares I added a cute little moon, also stamped in Picked Raspberry.

I’ve stamped butterflies and coloured them with more distress inks, adding white highlights with a gel pen. The smaller butterflies also have a smidge of Stickles whilst the larger butterfly has some gems for its body.

The finishing touch was to add the word “hope.”

Dionne has a new card, to mark Breast Cancer Awareness month, on her blog today and I am thrilled and honoured that she has dedicated this to me. I have to tell you it is a brilliant card with an inspired sentiment, perfect for the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign.

  1. FAB-U-LOUS! I love, love love these boards. Gorgeous colours, beautiful butterflies and just the right amount of sparkle.

    Also, many thanks for the shout out. I have to come clean and say that the sentiment did not come from my imagination but came with the stamp – it is brilliant though!

  2. HI there Hope your weekend was delightful. Love those little twinchies so pretty, the details are exquisite as always. What kind of paper did you use for the butterflies? They look like they have some body to them. Love how they stand off the base. Happy week

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
