Bellarific Friday: Twinchie challenge

This week's Stamping Bella blog challenge was "Twinchies".  Just in case you haven't heard the term before it refers to a two inch by two inch "canvas" on which to create.  For my card I decided to stamp four different Ketto stamps onto each of four "twinchies".  Because of the size, my card layout was limited so I opted for a square card (I think it's 5.5" x 5.5"---I don't have a ruler handy!!) with my stamped panels in the center.

I have a bit of a secret to share....I wasn't too happy with how some of colours (of Copic markers) matched the papers I selected.  I normally colour my images first and then pick papers etc. but in this case I had to chose my patterned paper first so that I could match four images to it.  In order to cover up my screw ups disguise how some of the colours matched I simply added some Crystal Stickles over the colours I didn't like.  Then I just added more Stickles to the other images as accents.  So I guess my designer tip of the day is that glitter can be your friend LOL!
