Hello and welcome...
We have a fun card for you today
I used a pre-cut blank jigsaw and coloured the background in 2 of the new Distress Oxide Inks.  I stamped the owl image, and the 3 sentiments that are part of this set, onto the jigsaw base using Jet Black StazOn.  I coloured the owl using several ink pens as well as using white ModgePodge on the eyes. Prior to adhering the stamped jigsaw to white card, leaving a narrow border,  I removed one of the jigsaw pieces, and matted the focal point onto paper that I distressed around all the edges and curled the top right corner.  This was then adhered to the blue pearlised  card base at a jaunty angle.  I then added mounting foam to the removed piece of jigsaw and adhered it to the bottom right of the design as well as popping a ladybird on top of it.  I sorted a few wooden strawberries, coloured them then glued them into place.  I also added a few ladybirds and 2 gold metal butterflies.  A fun card on what was another wet and cold day
