Gingersnaps Twinchie Swap

I joined in the Gingersnaps Twinchie Swap last month- Twinchies are 2x2  Here are the fabulous Twinchies I received:

 Lt -Nancy Johnson  and Rt Peggy G

Lt Electra Conada  and Rt Vicki Romaine

This is Electra's swap side view- it is made on a wood block- I have to try this......

Lt Debi Ryan and Rt Michelle Storms


OK- I will link up the creators blogs once I find them all......!

Here are the 6 Twinchies I mailed in:
  The Lt Twinchie was made with a technique using paper towels and Lumiere paint and I added metallic ribbon, lace and rhinestones.
 On the Rt- Lucy and Rickie and a postage stamp die from Cuttlebug


  The Lt is a collaged image and rub-ons with lace and rhinestones as accents.

 The Rt is Faux Metal BG and a collaged image with highlights in a Sakura Gelly Roll pen. I added some gold around the edge using Gold embossing powder.

 I guess my silly gene came out with this one.....I needed to add something and found these words in a magazine........ The flower is stamped  and a rhinestone embellishes its center.  I used strips of the Faux Metal in graduated widths for the background.

Finally, I made a masculine themed Twinchie using a president image and rub-ons. 

I can see making more of these- they are alot of fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
