Pieces of Heart

I was in pieces trying to decide what to do with Darcy's FANTABULOUS new stamp designs I bought recently( Electrica  Darcy 01 from Paper Artsy).
I had started a different project, but got carried away with the went BLAH!!!! so is now in rehab.
Then I spotted a pack of 2 blank jigsaw puzzles in a kiddy craft section of a large store and knew they would do nicely :D
 I started by building a base layer of colour using TH distress ink pads
 adding colours til satisfied...(no yellow)
 Next I simply stamped Darcy's images over the background using black Archival ink.
 Even on this irregular surface the images stamped amazingly crisply.
Then I added touches of deeper colours using promarkers (very carefully as I wasn't sure how the different layers of ink would react on the coated card surface)
 I used a gold metallic gel pen on the zippers. 

 I love the warm colours that formed, and hope Darcy likes how it turned out :D
This could be a great project for children during the wet days to come, using any stamps you have laying around lol.
I am entering this for Manon's Paper Saturdays challenge, and counting it as my Piece a Week
Enjoy :D XXX
