Altered Jigsaw Piece

This project was for a swap in my Yahoo group the theme being Spring.
I love to collect old jewellery which would normally be thrown away,any pieces i see in markets I buy cheaply, or friends send me knowing it wont be wasted just recycled lol,so the backing on this jigsaw piece is an old earring,its quite big,not the sort of thing I would wear lol,but ideal for what I had in mind.

The jigsaw piece I altered by first sticking some handmade backing paper on sprayed with inks then stamping with a daffodil stamp,colouring with Stardust pens (my favorite glitter thing)then glazing over with Anita's 3D Gloss finish,the little yellow flowers attached after,also the bead and lobster claw clasp.
I,m not sure what my swap partner will use this for lol,maybe to hang on a bag or mobile or just an ornament :-]......

Oh wow Pattie - that's one lucky swap partner who's going to receive this - the earring backing really sets off your altered jigsaw piece a treat.
