Something very different for me!

  Good evening Lovelies! Brrrr! Certainly starting feel like winter! How's everyone's Christmas shopping going? Mines rubbish this year I've normally finished by now but I've hardly started :(, must get going!
So tonight for a daily challenge the theme was altered puzzle piece! A new one on me? Never heard of it? But with some research it appears to be quite popular! So here's what I came up with!
The puzzle piece I traced off net and cut out of cereal pkt, I covered the reverse side with some Vintagey Xmas paper, I inked the front with peeled paint stamped using Christmas berries DI the smaller pointsettia stamp from a creative expressions set, and masked and stamped using forest moss DI a Justrite harlequin and text background stamp,  I then water brushed to just shade the pointsettias a bit and dotted some gold pen on the centre, I stamped and heat embossed in black EP the large pointsettia from the set 3 times and coloured with Spectrum Noir's and decoupaged off set slightly for more dimension. I must say I'm pretty pleased with it! Thank you for visiting xxx
