Something a bit different...

Good afternoon all, do hope this week is going well...

Firstly thank you all for the lovely comments that you have left on my blog , I really appreciate them all...

Recently I shared my Fantasy card on FB and I was blown over by all the comments and likes that it received. ...so yesterday I decided to make another one...well

....a jigsaw one....

What do you think?

Here is how I made it...

I started with a wonderful little ready made jigsaw from Creativ...

Just like with the card , I stamped the mushroom stamp using black Archival ink.....you do have to watch at this point as when you lift the stamp , some of the pieces may move....

Then out with the large moon mask,,,,and some Distress inks ...

The inks don't blend on this surface quite as well as they do on card....but well enough....then some water spritzing....

When the mask is removed....this is what I had...

Next came the colour using Spectrum Noir Pencils....

Followed by the fairies and magical stars...

Some white paint....

And then the whole thing was sealed with Spray and Shine....

A real fun grift to make.....

I think this may just be a workshop project....what do you think?

I must dash....I need to get sorted ready for workshop day tomorrow at the Paper Warehouse in Kendal...

Really Looking forward to it...just hope the motorway is kind to me in the morning...

Catch you soon,

Love and hugs...

  5. Really great project! Didn't know you get jigsaws like that! Thanks for sharing. Of all the masks I don't think I have the moons - keep meaning to look. I feel sure I but, if so, they are hiding. Craft room needs tidying and I'll find other stuff I've even forgotten about! Xx

  7. That is so lovely, Jo, and such an unusual project. What a great idea for presents for children. Might have to try that for the grandchildren, personalised jigsaws for each one. xxx Maggie
