Summer Sunshine Twinchie

After my earlier Christmas card post, I thought it would be a good idea to share something a little 'sunnier' - if we can't have sunshine outside, at least we can have it on the web! 

Having recently been introduced to twinchies, I was looking through my stash for things to use and I remembered buying some stampboard in various sizes a few years ago when it was all the rage, but I'd never really managed to do anything with it.  Having stared at it, moved it about a bit, and coloured a few pieces, I eventually came up with this bright sunny twinchie using a 2" x 2" piece of stampboard covered in alcohol inks, stamped and highlighted with a white marker
