A Piece of the Puzzle


Georgie here today, and I have been playing with the very fun, Dina Wakley paints... again! Boy, I am venturing more and more over to the bright side. I love how the colours on their own just lift your mood! Forget chocolate, these paints are the way to go!

Anyway.... :) back to the card. How many of you chuck away puzzles, with missing / dog-eared / eaten pieces? I have about three of my son's chunky puzzles which were about to find themselves in the bin, but the crafty brain got thinking, and voila:

Tried out some shadowing techniques with a stencil for the background. Laid down white paint first and then went over with purple, over a pink and blue mix base of colour.

Gorgeous Lawn Fawn die, had my eye on this for ages. This is just plain black card stock with UTEE over the top to give it that glossy domed look.

Finnabair stamps, those elegant butterflies and quirky text bubbles, stamped with Archival Inks. I coloured the butterflies with Picket Fence Distress Paint and edge with Intense pencils.

Bling bling!! Of course and little sparkle. Stunning faceted gems by Prima.
