Love Completes the Puzzle

Happy Tuesday!  That means it is time to share another card for The Project Bin.  For this week's card, I decided to use Spencer's Set again in honor of Autism Awareness month.

My background was created by blending 3 colors of distress inks onto watercolor paper and then spritzing droplets of water onto the panel, then lifting the water with a paper towel.  I really like the distressed look the water droplets create.  Once it was dry, I used a puzzle die to make my background into a puzzle, I thought it would coordinate well with the Autism puzzle logo.  When I assembled the puzzle pieces onto the black card stock, I purposely left a little gap between the pieces.  When I placed the pieces perfectly back together, it was really difficult to see that the background was a puzzle.  The little gaps make it easier to notice that the background is made up of puzzle pieces.

I stamped and colored the puzzle heart with colored pencils, then cut it out using the coordinating heart die that can be found in the In My Heart set.  I white-heat embossed the sentiment onto black card stock, and then cut one side into a fishtail banner, then adhered to the card.  For the finishing touch, an array of matching sequins for a decorative element.
