My twinchies are in celebration of my new-found interest in my former nemesis, the sewing machine.
The base is a 2" square grungeboard piece, that I embossed with a cuttlebug folder, then dragged through a puddle of ink and water, then brushed with some perfect pearls. On the left I attached a bit of paper tape measure and Graphic 45 paper with a zig zag stitch. I did a zig zag stitch! Check out the cool multi colored thread. It has a sheen too. Soon I'll give up my paperqueen crown and be the threadqueen.
I stamped Wendy's little stamp on a 1" square stampbord (great product!) in coffee archival ink, then put some rusty hinge distress ink over top. I hate naked buttons (buttons without thread) so sat and threaded and knotted all 18 buttons by hand.
I thought I was finished, but it seemed to want more. So I punched some little rounds (standard size hole punch) of grungepaper, glued together a double thickness of those, then attached the tiny Jenni Bowlin letters to write "sew." I really wanted to write "stitch," but after thinking about doing all that for a three letter word vrs. a six letter word, "sew" won out.
And here's a closer view of one of the twinchies.
