This was the first card I made with the jigsaw stamp. I had it in my head and tried to reproduce it on paper.
I started by stamping jigsaw on the back of centura pearl with cobalt blue archival ink. I stamped the single jigsaw piece and cut it out and attached it to the big jigsaw so I could create a whole picture. Then I decided where I wanted the trees and robin and stamped those in cornflower blue archival ink (Wendy Vecchi).
I then tore a piece of copy paper and using weathered wood distress ink created shadows for a snowy scene. I used tumbled glass for the sky. Then I extended the scene onto a bigger piece of card.
I stamped the Christmas star in cornflower blue and embossed it with stardust clear embossing powder. Happy Christmas was clear embossed.
Finally I versamarked the jigsaw pieces and used ultra thick clear embossing powder on them. I triple embossed for a smooth finish so it looks like a tile.
I'm entering this into the clarity winter challenge.
All for now Theresa xx
