Artchix Twinchies

Time for some art now after all the nature views. I've made some 2" squares pieces, called twinchies in the trade, for an Artchix swap. It's not due till September but I've now almost caught up with my to-do list so before tackling the quilting on a fairly large quilt I'm trying to make sure these swaps are not getting overlooked.

The only requirement apart from the size was to use images from Artchix Spoil me sheet and I've used both the transparency as well as the actual collage sheet on paper.

For the background I used a paper/fabric collage which features paper napkins on which there are chocolates, teacups and pots and cupcakes. All the images used are naturally from Artchix. The delicious chocolate German scrap trim is also from them.
I wanted the squares to look like little delectable chocolates themselves so they were finished with beading along the sides, using pink and brown size 11 seed beads.

Frieda,

Your twinchies are delectable! I hope I get one in my swap basket!
I have been working on 17 of them but will only send in 12 of the best. Mine aren't anything close to yours, yet I am having a blast working with such a small 'canvas'.
