Distressed Twinchies


I'm attempting to revived the twinchies swap over on UKStampers.  Hopefully enough will join in for the swap to take place, so in anticipation I have gone ahead and made my twinchies.  The theme I chose is 'distressed'.  I created the background by colouring a large piece of card with various colours of distress stains, wild honey, fired brick, peeled paint, forest moss, antique linen, walnut stain and vintage photo and cut them into 2" squares.  The swap is for 6 twinchies, but I've made 7!!  I stamped the images in clear ink and used black embossing powder to cover.  I've added gems and swirls to some of them.  I edged them with various colours of distress inks, pine needles, tea dye and walnut stain.
