Distressed Twinchies




One of the members on UK Stampers Forum has revived the Twinchie swap after a period of dormancy.  This swap has the theme of 'Distressed' and need us each to make 6 Twinchies.






I made 6 twinchies from thick card cut to 2 x 2 inches.  The theme is the same for each of them.  I first gave the surface a coat of Distress Ink applied with foam.  I used pine needles, spiced marmalade, weathered wood, mustard seed, dusty concord and fired brick.

Next a thick coat of the corresponding Distress Crackle paint wa added and allowed to dry completely.  A clock face and a swirl stamp from Crafty Individuals was then inked in the corresponding Distress ink and gold Stazon and stamped as shown. A splodge of Rock Candy Stickles was added and rubbed over with a finger to spread.


 
The edges of each inchie were then distressed with sandpaper and inked in a corresponding colour.  Finishing touch was to add a metallic brad in the middle of each watch face and a cut down TH letter sticker.

  14. Really interesting technique, Sid. I tried putting crackle glaze on a canvas, but it did not work for me, it came out too dark, but I guess that's because the whole canvas was too gloomy.
    I think I'll have another try!!
