Twichies - Add A Flower

This time the challenge over at the Show Us Your Twinchies blog, is Add A Flower. I decided to use this small flower stamp that comes from a stamp sheet from Chocolate Baroque, unfortunately this stamp sheet is now discontinued. I stamped the flower onto my 2 inch x 2 inch (5 cms x 5 cms) piece of card using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, and then with a water brush pulled the colour out to shade the flowers. Then I ran the edges of the card across the ink pad to finish.

I have decided that if I am going to make these twinchies I need to finish them in some way, rather than just leave a tiny pieces of art. So after making the first twinchie, I made 2 more the same and mounted them onto some black card. I then cut a piece of card 14.5 cms x 14.5 cms in white and blended the Picked Raspberry Distress Ink across the card. I the took a Crafters Workshop mask (available from Chocolate Baroque) and again with the Picked Raspberry went over the top making sure the inking was darker than the base. I added the word art from the Artistic Expressions stamp sheet, from Chocolate Baroque again, in black ink and added some black organza ribbon across the middle of the card. I then added the background to a 15 cm x 15 cm black card base, and place the twinchies onto this.

Thank you for taking the time to look, and you kind comments that are always appreciated.

A great twinchie and such a good idea to make them into that beautiful card otherwise they'd probably lie around unused or in my case get lost!!
