Shaping along nicely...

I am referring to the  Lots to do Challenge, where shapes are the order of the day. I took lots of shapes, a jigsaw shape as a base, large, shapes from Tattered florals, leaves from Wendy Vecchi, kindly left by Hels (thank you), and letter shapes from the girls paperie.
I gessoed the jigsaw shape, and distress inked it in shades of yellow, with a tinge of black on the edges. I added the letters, and the cut out floral shapes ( which are in mountboard, which nearly killed my machine! grr) and distress inked them, added Rock candy crackle paint to the letters, added buttons, mini grungepaper roses and idea-ology to the flowers. 
 
Thank you girls for the challenge. I enjoyed making this!
If you fancy joining in pop over and have a look.
Happy Creating!
