Hello Stampers! This week I have altered a jumbo jigsaw piece. It was originally part of a Tweenies puzzle I bought in a charity shop.
First I covered the whole of the back of the jigsaw piece with tissue tape, which is currently on special offer HERE. Then I inked the tape with alcohol inks. I used butterscotch, terra cotta & red pepper. I stamped the Bare Tree twice, using black Archival Ink.
I stamped the leaf, from Tick Tock Flowers, three times on book paper, then cut them out & layered them on the bottom right of the jigsaw piece, with some skeleton leaves.
To make the flower, I cut out a piece of sticky back aluminium sheet, 4x2 inches, inked it with the same alcohol inks as before, peeled off the backing paper & stuck it to some black card, the same size. I stamped the small Tick Tock Flower twice, using Black Stazon, then cut them out, leaving a small border around them, about 1mm. I used a metal tool to emboss the cogs on the flowers, & a wheel tool to edge the flowers. Then I curled the petals, layered them together with a Tim Holtz sprocket gear & long fastener, & glued the flower on top of the leaves.
Finally, I stamped AUTUMN from the Greetings & Words plate, on a piece of alcohol-inked glossy card, edged it with black Archival ink, & attached it to the jigsaw piece with 2 Long Fasteners.
Thanks for looking,
