A Piece of a Puzzle

Puzzled Cats - Wall Hanging

To start this project ink up your 3 large puzzle pieces (Toddler size age 2 – 4) with Brilliance Pigment Ink – Twilight. (Puzzle pieces were purchased from my local jumble sale). Dab the inkpad over the puzzle pieces a few times to cover the surface. Once you have achieved your desired effect you can then stamp your individual images onto the pieces using coal black Ancient Page dye ink (ClearSnap). The cat stamps I used :- 1st name and source unknown : 2nd Kitty Love from All Night Media : 3rd from The Stamp Studio
Next outline the puzzle pieces and then turn over and color over the original puzzle picture using a silver marker (DecoColor opaque - broad line).
To give the cat images the gloss effect I used Hi-Tack 3D Crystal Lacquer, gently cover over your images and place to one side to dry. While they are drying you can move onto decorating your dominoes.
Stamp your word onto the domino (standard size 2” x 1”) using coal black Ancient Page dye ink (ClearSnap) and emboss with ultra clear embossing powder and heat set.

Cut both the lilac ribbon and the chain rainbow/purple ribbon to 11 inches in length. Purchased from local craft store. Glue the chain ribbon to the lilac ribbon and then glue one end around the metal hook using Aleen’s tacky glue.
Cut the chain purple ribbon - 2 lengths of 6 inches each and glue around edge of dominoes. Once 3D Crystal Lacquer is dry adhere the puzzle pieces and dominoes to the ribbon using Aleen’s tacky glue.
Use various rhinestones of co-coordinating colors to decorate the corners of both the dominoes and the puzzle pieces.
