Altered Floor Jigsaw by Mandy C



Black Archival Ink
Cosmic Shimmer Ink Sprays ~ Meadow Green and Riviera Blue
Piece of floor puzzle OR draw around a jigsaw piece, scan and enlarge to whatever size you’d like to use. Puzzle pieces make excellent fridge magnets
Piece of vintage music paper


·       Prepare you puzzle piece with gesso… this helps the sprays stick to it.

·       Spray using the Cosmic Shimmer Mists. Blot off with kitchen towel. These ink sprays are fairly strong colours and I didn’t want the background to over take the images.

·       Allow to dry or dry with a heat tool.

·       Stamp using the flowers from the ‘Garden Grow’ set using the blue violet Archival. Then lightly stamp with black, the circles. I’ve used a different stamp but the circles from the ‘Lucy’ set would work too.

·       Dry with a heat tool as the Archival ink is a very wet ink.

·       Add a strip of vintage paper.

·       Stamp directly onto the jigsaw with the row of flowers and the big bird. Also stamp the images onto a piece of stamping card so you can add the bird and flower heads to make them stand out more.

·       Colour your images on the stamping card and cut out. Adhere into place using the Cosmic Shimmer Glue.

·       Add some shading around the bird.

·       Choose a sentiment and stamp with black Archival and cut out and adhere to the jigsaw piece.

·       Edge with a co-ordinating chalk ink.
