Playing in the Woad

Hello.  Welcome.  I played with Nancy the other day for the CC Designs Twinchie challenge and today Henry said it was his turn.  

I stamped CC Designs Viking Henry on a scrap of white card, cut round the sword and his hand and used a Gummiapan 5cm (2") stitched die to cut out my twinchie.  I coloured him with distress inks and his sword with silver pilot marker.  I gave my twinchie a background wash with Stormy Sky distress ink and edged with black archival.

And cos a twinchie doesn't take long to make I also did this......

I used a orange base card and cut a blue scrap with Stamplorations medium Crazy Double Stitch Rectangle die and Poppystamps House in the Woods die.  I love this cute little wood and house collage but I always seem to end up vanishing the house....

I stamped Henry on a scrap of white card using black archival, coloured with distress inks and the silver plot marker again and fussy cut.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  1. I love how the sword stretches up and over the border on the twinchie. Henry is a doll and works for your card as well. That is a super die you have used for your card and I see what you mean about the house. But I know it's there, so it's okay! Nice work, my friend!

  2. Really great card as well as your twinchie! I love Henry (Len's middle name) - so cute flying into battle there :)

  3. Psst - I like your GDPR wording below the comments box. It's not over heavy but addresses the subject well. It's the best I've seen - and I've been seeing a lot! I do hope you don't mind me using your same words - and I think you've got it in absolutely the right place too!!
