Pieces of Pictures

Playing a little later this week, as it has been rather a manic one! In some ways it has seemed like a very long week, and in others it has flown by! But I found some time to create my postcard for SPA tonight.

I liked this weeks theme of Pieces of Pictures - a chance to play with my jigsaw puzzle die! I have been waiting for a chance to use it, and this seemed just right. I stamped an image of two faces first onto white card, then coloured this in with watercolours. I then die cut the image. The background postcard I painted blue, then distress inked the edges of all the pieces in brown, I arranged the puzzle pieces and stuck them down. I created a bit of dimension by layering on some extra die cut shapes using foam pads to raise them up.

Considering this was done quite quickly with what I had to hand, I am quite pleased with the end effect. I hope you enjoy it too.

Head on over to SPA to see other great examples for inspiration and have a go too!

OH SALLY this is wonderful, creative and down right fantastic.

I also admire your J52 week 8 journal page.

Sorry I'm late in returning some visits had some internet problems, but thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment.

Oh my gosh!!! I didn't see your post over at SPA, and found it because of a different challenge. This is STUNNING!!!

I'm adding your blog to my list of blogs on my blog, if I don't already have you in my list. :-)
