Autumn Twinchies

Just had a quick play and made a couple of twinchies (2" by 2") for the Show us your Twinchies challenge no 7.   The theme is anything goes but as it's getting autumnal I thought I'd go with that.

The background is an oddment of green card swooshed through some leftover ink on the mat - Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade, Mowed Lawn and Barn Door Distress Inks spritzed with water.    I cut them to size and then gold embossed the images from Tim Holtz's Mini Blueprint set.  Luckily all the stamps on this set are less than 2" square so I'm sure they're all going to come in really useful!!

I've finished by blending some ink round the edges and adding a little more colour to the images with a waterbrush.

Hope you like and thanks for looking.
