This Thursday challenge 11

Now this week and next I am otherwise occupied and will be unable to come and post comments on your entries. Please don't think that i can't be bothered, I always love looking through the entries at This Thursday because your work is always varied, magnificent and inspirational.

Anyway this weeks challenge on This Thursday is Its a puzzler. So you can use puzzle peices. alter puzzle peices , use the title, make your own puzzle, or portray something that puzzles you, eg, Men, The offside rule, why football is considered so important, Whatever takes your fancy

Anyway here are my offerings this week,

This is one of my favorite peices that i have ever made, I used some cheap card puzzle peices. I embossed the patterned side with copper and silver embossing powder. I worked on a teflon sheet, so that when i heated the other side i would not lose all the embossing on the back . I then turned them over and 1st embossed with verdigree, then reheated it and sprinkled on light blue, reheated then sprinkled on silver, then again with lilac, then dark blue then dark purple. I am going to be making loads of these as you can wear it reversed.

This was a cheapcomplete alphabete foam jigsaw from the works that i bought years ago, thinking that I could do something with it. Mostly Caps for scrapbook pages. However I thought I would make a hanger ffor my craft room I added glitter, copper leafing, acrylic paint. Stazon Brads, papers mists Tags and rub ons and stamping. Its a bit brighter in real life.

I only made two examples this week, tut tut slacking a bit. Will try harded next week
