Show us your Twinchies

Thought I would start making some twinchies as they always look nice when I have seen others that people have made. I follow Show us your twinchies and the challenge is 'bright colours'. This seemed a good challenge to start me off with my twinchie 'career'. Well they are more difficult than I imagine and this one is my fifth attempt to make something colourful.

First of all I dropped a bit of alcohol ink onto the little piece of card, in three colours. This gave me to shapes to follow when it had spread out. Then I used acrylic paint straight from the tube to add a bit of coloured texture following the shapes left by the inks. Next came the stamped butterfly image which I coloured with Promarkers and made it's wings look as though they were flying. Can't believe how much will fit into 2x2 inches.
