The colour scheme is based around the Tim Holtz Summer set of Distress Inks - Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean.
I began by creating the Gelli print, leaving a clear area in the centre for the jigsaw stamp. I used the masks to section off each piece of it, like I did for my Deerscape Jigsaw Card, then added the colour with an Ink Duster and a make-up sponge.
I also went over each piece with a crackle stamp to add a bit more interest. Once that was complete I masked the outside of the jigsaw off and stamped the Leafy Swirl over it in Black Archival.
To add some colour to the frame I randomly brushed the Distress Inks through the Dotty Wave stencil. It was still missing something though.
I don't normally use a lot of flowers and embellishments on my cards but I think they really finish this one off. I used my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals with some Spellbinders leaves to make them. Luckily I had one blue brad that was the perfect colour for the centre!
It took a while to get there but I was really pleased with how this one turned out and I love the colours - Thanks for putting that set of ink pads together Tim.
If you want to watch what Barbara does with this clever Jigsaw stamp the lesson will be on Create and Craft TV at 11am on the 31st August. I'll certainly be watching.
