Altered jigsaw pieces

These two pieces are for Sherry, who wanted a vintage Christmas in red and gold, and a folk art one in red, green, and brown. The first one is a stamped and embossed angel,on a painted background. Other ephemera added, and beads hung from the bottom. The other piece has a embossed background. The Xmas tree is alcohol inked shrink plastic. The other bits are wooden buttons and objects

These two pictures are the back and front of Margaret's hanging piece. Margaret wanted white, gold and red. The front has my favourite stamped angel, which I embossed and painted with pearlescent paints. The top wings have a covering of a sort of shiny gold see through paper. I have added some gems and other bits. the back shows the paper up well, it's the piece to the right of the angel. There is a metal snow flake hanging from it, which I have embossed with snowflake powder.
The big blue bit is for John, who wanted Christmas afternoon in purples and blues, with red and orange for contrast. It had to be done, 'cos what do lots of men do in the afternoon, yes go to sleep, full of Chrismas dinner, usually listening to the Queens speech.
The background is painted and embossed, with an added piece of purple card. The stamped image has an embossed edge. The dark blue Christmas tree has wire and red beads wrapped around it.
The one with the green angel is for Cindy whose theme was Wings. The packground is painted with pearlescent liquid acrylics. the angel is stamped and embossed. The bottom butterfly is friendly plastic, and the other two collaged and coated with lacquer.
Whoops,put this one in twice, and can't get rid of it

These two are for Viv, whose themes were Vintage Christmas, and Time. I love doing time things, and used shrink plastic, and watch parts on a stamped and embossed background. There is also a small jigsaw piece there as well.

This one is Viv's Vintage Christmas. The background is painted and embossed, with the image and ephemera added afterwards. There are beads hanging from the bottom

This is for Jinny who wanted a floral theme. I have used shrink plastic, friendly plastic, and paper flowers on a painted background.

At the moment June is offering some vintage images for an altered jigsaw piece challenge, so have linked her to my blog, as there are loads of altered jigsaws on here.
