Twinchies! SDC 204

I am hostess this week over at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge and I am challenging you to create a set of Twinchies!

What exactly is a "twinchie" ?  If you have heard of inchies it's artworks that give you a little extra room to create -- exactly 2" x 2" of art!  To make your twinchies simple trim cardstock or lightweight watercolor paper in 2 x 2 inch squares.

Sift through your Stampotique stamps and find smaller images or use larger ones to offset.  Pick a common theme and balance your colors to create a cohesive set. 
 For my set I am using my quails cube - a versatile collection for four graphic inspired quails.

 I did the majority of my coloring with inexpensive BIC®  markers -- they don't blend as well as a COPIC® marker but they are great to make the most of your art budget and reasonable to use with children. I added detail with a small point PITT artist pen.

These are fun to create in sets and a great activity for children. With summer months still cooking grab your stamps and some pens and create sets for yourselves of with the kids.
