I'm kicking off Half-O-Ween with my Skellie Jigsaw card!
I used two Lost Coast Designs stamps:  Skeleton and Roses and Long Swirl Flourish and an altered jigsaw puzzle piece! 

Stamp the Skeleton and Roses image with Onyx Black Memento Ink onto Neenah Solar White cardstock or similar cardstock suitable for use with Copic markers.  Stamp the Long Swirl Flourish multiple times with Walnut Stain Distress Ink to create a decorative background.  Colour the roses with Copics R39 and R46, the greenery with G28, the Skeleton with E41 and the frame with Fired Brick Distress Marker.  Die cut out the panel with Cuttlebug's Jigsaw Puzzle die then edge each piece with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  Adhere the jigsaw pieces to a black cardstock mat and distress the edges of the mat with Tim's Paper Distresser tool.  Then adhere that to a deep red cardstock mat.  Distress the edges and apply Black Soot Distress Ink to the edges.

Now for the puzzle piece!  I stamped the Skellie head portion onto the back of a real cardboard puzzle piece that was already white with Onyx Black Memento ink.  But if you want to use the front of a piece or if the back is cardboard grey then prep the surface with a coat of Claudine Hellmuth Studio Gesso.  Colour the background of the image with Tea Dye Distress Marker and the roses with the same Copics as the other roses.  Then add some Pumice Stone Distress Marker to the shadows on the skeleton too.  Adhere the puzzle piece to the card with Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive and finish off with Opal Stickles glitter glue applied to all the roses on the puzzle piece and just the centers of the others.

Don't forget to stop by DominoART again on May 3rd for the next featured project!

There's 2 other events currently happening too so come and join the fun! 
Domino Hugs!
