Something Completely Different .... Crowns


I've never made a 'twinchie' before so this weeks challenge from Something Completely Different certainly was different for me. The challenge this month is to make a 'twinchie' (2"x2") with the theme this week of 'crowns'. I used up more leftover bits from my desk to make this



I've covered a square of greyboard with  some glimmer misted paper from an old book and distressed the edges with brilliance lightening black ink. I've coloured Patty with promarkers and cut her out. Patty was a freebie I got from Cowgirl Up earlier this year, CJ has some gorgeous images and at the minute she has a fab sale with 25% off - be quick though cos the sale ends soon. Patty is in disguise today as she usually wears a top hat but I've replaced that with a crown for this challenge. The crown is a chipboard shape, coloured with opera pink ink and overstamped in black with a Tim Hotz background stamp. I then triple embossed it with clear ep and added some little black gems. I used a scrap of card, stamped with the same background stamp and punched a couple of butterflies using an Anna Griffin punch and added some more black gems. To finish off I added a little drop of glossy accents to Patty's eyes to highlight them
Thanks for looking
