Technically a twinchie is a two by two inch creation. My base is two by two but I extended it a little bit by having butterflies on a chenille stem. I started by adhering gStudio Washi tape onto my base. Then I took the negative left over from cutting out a butterfly from confetti card which explains the dots. I eBrushed it with two different turquoise Sprectrum Noir markers. Alas I could not capture the shimmer in my photo but then I applied Liquidtex Iridescent Medium. The medium did not change the colors in anyway. It only added a nice sheen which is nice to know for future projects. After I glued the negative to my base I took a gel pen and printed Spring Joy. My letters got away from me and decided to dance which explains the i and the n.
I love how the butterflies here look. When I made the paper I didn't know what I was going to use it for. They are stamped and cut out of wax paper which had white school glue painted on it. Then the glue was eBrushed. The specks are pieces of glitter as I sprinkled glitter on the glue before adhering torn pieces of facial tissure.. I don't know who makes the butterfly stamp or even if it is still available. I stamped with Ranger black archival ink on the tissue paper side and then cut my butterflies out. I also stamped some on the wax paper side. Either way will work depending on the look you are after. On the wax paper side the glitter really shows through. I took a chenille stem and bent it and glued my butterflies to it. I played with wire first but decided I liked the chenille stems better. I thought of eBrushing the chenille stems but decided to leave them white since the washi tape has white in it..
The twinchie challenge ends Sunday and I don't know if I'll enter a couple others or not. I have some ideas. I have to admit that it would be more fun than clearing out my file cabinet so it can be moved to another room. ;-)
Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
