Giant Puzzle Pieces
I was asked by a friend if I would help out in a swap that hadn't quite gone to plan where one of the participants had missed out on getting her puzzle back. My friend very kindly organized for 3 of us to do 2 pieces each - there were a total of 6 pieces in the puzzle. I was only too happy to help out.......... I hadn't been in the original swap, but after completing these 2 pieces I wish that I had joined it..............oh well!
For the 1st piece I've used Basic Grey paper and sanded around the edges to show a little white.
All of the stamps I've used are by The Darkroom Door, the blue foam flower is from a KMart pack, the gold butterfly is a bead, which I've threaded with some fine gold wire to give it some feelers. The large red butterfly, which has a little mirrored butterfly on top, was a flea market find...............it was originally a brooch - I just cut off the pin from the back!
I'll be back later to show you the 2nd puzzle piece!
