My first thoughts were to make a sky and grass and kind of make a rain scene with rubber boots and an umbrella. Raindrops, clouds and such. So I first put a layer of gesso on the blank card. After I used distress ink to make the sky and grass area I stamped some clouds with Versamark and white embossed them. Like the card below.
Now for the boots and umbrella. Of course I had a scratch piece of paper as well and I just was not happy with how it turned out. I tried to stamp some animals on it did not make me happy either. Then I tried pin-wheels. Again I was not happy. I finally decided that my grass, sky and clouds puzzle card was not it. I will have to use it some other time.
Next I just made the background one colour with distress ink and added some glimmer mist to it to give it some shine. I decided to use shapes placed randomly on the card that would be more appropriate for a 3 year old I thought. Well the shapes became hearts and they certainly were not randomly placed. But I did like the end result. I stamped the hearts with Versamark and embossed them with different colours embossing powder.
This is a close up of one of the corners showing the dotted edge around it as well.
The puzzle card became a puzzle for me.
