Hi all... well here we are with this months challenge :D We would like you to alter a jigsaw piece, any shape or size you wish. The only stipulation is that it MUST include 'bling' well it would have to wouldn't it when I'm setting the challenge..lol Here is my example... I used free background paper from Cen's loft and the Santa image is from Cen's crafty bits. I added lots of glitter and bling and used an Artistic Stamper flourish stamp to add interest to the background. My little finishing touch was to add hanging paper baubles stamped with a snowflake stamp (can't be seen very well here but there are more pics on my personal blog)
We have a free template for you to use if you don't have a jigsaw piece of your own but you need to enlarge the picture by clicking on it before saving it to your computer and printing out. Sticking the template onto cardboard before cutting out will give you a stronger base to work on.
The template is in four sizes so that you can use the one best suited to your own project :D
Chriss will be adding her example to this post shortly and will give you the rest of the details for the challenge and the end date. So happy crafting from me and I will be looking forward to your entry :D
Thanx Chris for setting this months challenge to alter a jigsaw which must include BLING, LOL.
We have 1 week to do this... closing Monday 15th Dec 12 noon UK time.
By either using the templates Chris has shared with us or you can use your own whatever you decide just leave us a comment telling us where to find you and we will pop along to see your creation.
We will use a Random Integer Generator to choose 1 lucky person to receive a little surprise crafty goody bag from us.
Happy altering ....I am off to do mine now!!!
At last here is my altered jigsaw for our challenge although it is not a brilliant scan sorry.
I covered the puzzle piece in a remnant of wallpaper, stamped the Crafty Individual Queen of Hearts stamp onto an ATC with black stayzon ink.
Added the BLING (just for our lovely Chris) to her crown and at the bottom of the puzzle... Then stamped randomly using the CI postage stamp... adhered a diamond circle on her eye which I bought from Karen at Scrapz.
Looking forward to seeing your altered puzzles.
