Bits and bobs

I been using up more of the odds & ends that have been sitting on my desk or in the oddments box and made up some small square cards. As luck would have it there are 2 twinchie challenges that these will fit :-) challenge (autumn) & (anything goes)

The backgrounds are some papers coloured with oil pastels, I used the reverse side of the paper as I liked the texture. And the leaves are tissue paper that has been coloured with distress inks, over stamped and then diecut. The leaves are left over from a Tammy Tutterow tutorial that I tried out a couple of months ago, some of the leaves are in fact a few layers thick (hellish difficult to separate) so just to make sure that everything stayed together...I dabbed the twinchies with versamark & sprinkled with clear embossing powder! Once they had been heated the colours popped so much more :-)

I've used a textured paint chip (USA) to mount this one.

A leftover dry embossed wallpaper scrap for this one!

A piece of gift wrap...

Another textured paint chip.

  2. These are beautiful! You're so creative in using up your odds and ends. I always enjoy doing that too. These are wonderful projects!

  3. These are lovely, I love those little leaves and the textured paint chip is a great idea. Autumn themes are my favourites at the moment but that could be because Autumn is coming. x
