UTEE & Puzzles ATC's

I got these puzzle pieces a while ago ifrom the "Kraft Krazy" sale bin and I was determined to find a way to use them. I saw some ideas for puzzle pieces on another blog and while I was playing with the UTEE this sort of just came to me:-)

I first stamped and clear embossed the whole image onto ATC cards then clear embossed them then I dragged an ink pad over to create the shading wiping away the excess ink from the clear embossing

I then inked the stamp again and laid the puzzle piece over the part I wanted to capture and after clear embossing again coloured with an ink pad in a toning shade. Then just position the piece in place and adhere with clear glue.

For the beaded puzzle pieces, I coloured and UTEE clear embossed them 3 times to get a thick covering them while the UTEE was molten sprinkled in some beads. Assemble the ATC as before.

The others are using some woven paper fabric and a few embellishments, Wanting to create something from all the stuff I have been gathering a while I had a day of pick and mixing I raided the drawers of bits I have had a while and just went from there.
