Vintage Twinchies

Hi everyone,

I got a lovely little package in the post today - six vintage "twinchies" from the Gingersnap Art Exchange.





These are from Valerie, Petra, Alexa, Laura, Annette and Kerry.

Thank you so much ladies and thanks Laura for organising the swap.











These are the ones I made - my first go at making twinchies ...









I made a background using Trisha's Serendipity technique (another first for me).


I collaged some paper scraps, painted over with gold acrylic paint then overstamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia using Stampin Up's Vintage roller.

Images in the bottle caps are from The Graphic's Fairy.

Thanks for popping in, hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Suze xx

these are all so pretty and your twinchies are very pretty, so excited that they are on their way, not sure how long they'll take to get to me here in NZ but will be worth the wait. Debi x

Your background is wonderful, I hope you had as much fun with that technique as I do.

Lovely twinchies you received in the swap, but I just adore the ones you made, sounds like a very interesting technique and the result is gorgeous, the bottle tops are amazing with the touch of lace.
