Oh I know what you're thinking...what the heck is an inbetweenchies? Well Inchies are 1 inch square works of art, kind of like an ATC only smaller, Twinchies are the same only 2 inch squares and well, Inbetweenchies are what I call the 1 1/2 inch ones.
Okay enough about the stinkin shapes and sizes and my crazy made up words.
Twinchies and Inbetweenchies:
I used recycled cardboad boxes as my base and cut out the squares using my Sizzix Square #2 die. I first painted them white and used Tim Holtz Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Ink with water as a background. I then stamped my images with Archival Ink.
I cut out my inch squares with the same Sizzix die. I used recyled cardboad boxes again but painted them black instead of white. I used a Hampton Art Stamps called Paris Moments to make these. It's a big stamp with 15 different images on it. I just stamped it on white card stock and water colored the images. I let them dry, cut them out and used Glossy Mod Podge to adhere them and seal them onto the black squares I cut out earlier. When they were dry, I added Glossy Accents to the top.
Art Tile Shapes:
I have to be honest, I am not quite as happy with how these turned out. I think it was how I stamped them and how I colored them...maybe the color combos. Not totally sure. I do like some of them, but not all of them.
I first painted them white and then stamped on them with Archival Ink. I used a make-up sponge and pigment ink to color them. I tried to blend it as much as I could with the make up sponge and sometimes with my fingers. I also sealed these with Glossy Mod Podge but didn't use Glossy Accents on them because I wasn't totally happy with how they turned out. To be honest, that stuff is expensive too so I didn't want to waste it if I wasn't going to like them. I will see how I feel tomorrow. I do like some of them so I'll probably Glossy Accent those and use the other ones in my art journal or junk journal.
I'd like to enter my Twinchies in the following challenge:
