Hmmmm what to do with all those twinchies!

Good evening lovelies! Phew! It's a hot one isn't it? Not complaining though ;) 
So as the title suggest's! This is what I've done with two of them tonight.
The first one is my illusion one from our first challenge, 6x6 craft card, I stamped using Wild honey DI second generation only to create a more distressed effect, the wonderful grunge polka dot background from Visible Image, on cream card I stamped a wooden script stamp I've had for years, using Galaxy gold brilliance ink, when dry I lightly inked using vintage photo DI, then using my fab flitter glu from Indigoblu I stamped the Harlequin background stamp also from visible image, then used gold gilding flakes I really scrubbed hard to get a lot off to achieve a distressed effect, then stuck on my twinchie!
The second, I used 5x5 white card and masked the edges, using stampe from the portobello road set I stamped using versamark then used pan pastels, sealed with cheap hairspray and voila! Just a quick little plug for the lovely Helen and Mark Visible Image, check out there website their stamps are of excellent quality http://www.visibleimage.co.uk/default.htm  thank you for visiting my blog today, I love to read what you have to say, good or bad I really appreciate it xxx

They are both beautiful and I couldn't pick one over the other, but I like the cracked effect on the blue and red one.
