Good news, right???

It is time for the weekly newbie party at Debbie Doo's Blogging and Blabbing!  Don't know Debbie?  Click the link and check her out!!  She is a "newbie's" dream and a first rate blogger!!! 

I am showing something I made for ArtChix Studio's bi-weekly challenge.  The challenge is to use at least one postage stamp on your project.  I have several ArtChix collage sheets, and I used some of those images.  I can't be sure they are all stamps though.  But, I can say that at least one is, and the others are from the BonVoyage collage sheet, so they may be stamps, or tickets, I can not say.  As soon as I saw the theme, I thought twinchies!!  Twinchies are little pieces of art, that are only 2 inches by 2 inches. 

I made 5 of them, because they are so small.  And, I like odd numbers!  I started with cardboard that I always have.  I hoard cardboard!!  Love to use it!!  Anyway, I cut the cardboard, and painted it with some watered down cadmium yellow paint.  Then, I attached the stamps.  I then used my fine tipped Sharpie to add some lines across them.  Like a used postage stamp.  But, I had to have more.  So, I used my white Sharpie paint pen and made dots.  Still not enough, so I wrapped them with some pink bakers twine!!

Here are a few close ups.

The Eiffel Tower one is my Favorite!!
