Anything Goes !!

Anything goes time at a new challenge over at Tellen's Place Designs. They supply a freebie as well so following the rule that a TPD image must be used isn't hard to do. I had a quick scoot through the other entries to see what I was up against. Wow. Only 3 people out of 12 so far can read. Oh well. More chance for me, hehehe. joking.
I wanted to play along and love the dark images as my followers should know. It took me a couple of days before this project popped into the brain cell. Then there was no stopping me. Apart from the drying time needed before the final cutting.

Using 5 of the female dark images. Divas in their own way and it's the Divas that are being showcased this week. All coloured with promarkers

All made into small jigsaws.

The base is a couple of sheets of thin mount board, stuck together, dried under a weight to ensure no warping before glueing the girls on. Again keeping weighted flat until dry.

The images were then cut as seen using a die and my bigshot.

Yes, before you ask, they do come apart. My son had great fun mixing them up. (As old as he is).

I am entering this into the challenge at
