I came across this blog from the UK, http://twinchie-twinchiehotmaillive.blogspot.ca/ that sets a challenge every fortnight to create a two inch by two inch square piece of art and the theme this time is add a flower.
My first one is using a spare dragon that I made for my heart journal, it is triple embossed and coloured on the back. I used a pretty flower paper to mount it on and coated all the flowers and buds with glossy accents. Finally I edged it with with lipstick distress ink.
My second twinchie uses the same background paper edged with lipstick distress ink but this time I cut up a plastic water bottle, cut flower shapes our of it and heated it over a candle to curl the petals. Coloured with red and gold alcohol inks and a brad in the center with a silver heart decoration to hold it all together. I used the same process for a couple of leaves and stuck a triangle of hessian in the top corner.
My third flower is made in the same way by heating plastic and coloured with peri and turquoise alcohol inks. Mounted together with three green plastic leaves and a corner of hessian on blue printed cardstock. This one has a look of coloured glass to me. Enjoying this plastic process, I will have to make some more
