Large Jigsaw Shape


This is a large chipboard jigsaw piece which measures approx 7" x 5".  I stuck various findings to the raw chipboard, then covered in silver sticky tape.  I burnished around each shape using my metal tools and a paper stump to define each shape.  Using meadow, stream, eggplant, sail boat and citrus alcohol inks I coloured the background, this took a few coats to achieve the desired colour.  I then used black acrylic paint to swipe over and wipe off the access.  Once dry I applied rub n buff in red copper, jade and pewter.  Finally I cut up a quote, edged each word in black soot distress ink and applied to the jigsaw piece.


If you fancy a go yourself, I've got these corner pieces and the 2 nobble and 1 hole style of the chipboard pieces for sale at £2 with free postage.  I also have some of the embellishments available for £1 a bag too.  Use the email button on the side bar to contact me if you are interested in anything.
