Puzzle Piece Inchies.

Just having a coffee break in between crafting and thought I would share my "Inchies" with you all.

I am in a Dutch group for Inchie swaps on Facebbok and the theme this time around was to use actual puzzle pieces on our Inchies,each one must be decorated.
So I set to and found an old puzzle in my garage and selected a few pieces that wouldn't protrude too much over the actual inchie.
To decorate I used some scraps of card that I'd used to play with my glimmers mists and covered the front and backs of the inchie.
The puzzle pieces were gessoed several times to cover their original image and then once dry I rubbed them over in distress ink.
Using sections of stamps,I then added images to the puzzle pieces,some of which I then coloured in. 
Once completely I decided to add glossy accents and crackle glossy accents to the puzzle pieces for a nicer effect, finally adding one or two pearls and gems.
