Lettering and Jigsaw!/ Puzzle!

Lettering  week at CraftBarn this week. I altered an old jigsaw, now it's more funky:
Alfabeto e letterine il tema diquesta settimana su CraftBarn .
Cosa si può fare con un vecchio puzzle? Ma alterarlo e renderlo un pò più funky:
 E magari farci degli orecchini mettibilissimi!! ;-)
And what about a pair of earrings?
 
Here's the step by step./Qui il passo passo.
Materials:
Tim Holtz Sizzlits Decorative Strip Alphabet Die - Chip Block 
Pebeo Studio acrylic auxiliaries: Gesso 250 ml 
Pebeo Studio acrylic auxiliaries: Studio matte gel 
The Crafters Workshop template - Mixed-up alpha 
IndigoBlu rubber stamps: Circle dot background 
Tando Masks - Andy Skinner: 6x6 Hippy Chick  


And speaking about lettering...: 
E a proposito di lettere:
The new letter for the Alpha Challenge is O, for me "Opposite", Black & White.
Nuova lettera per l'Alpha Challenge: O, e per me la parola "Opposto", cioè Bianco e Nero.

Hi Gio
The ear-rings are such fun.
I do like the idea of the opposites of black and white.
Wonderful!
Gio, many thanks for your lovely comment on my Ladies Who Shop tote bag. I am still pinching myself that it was published in Haute Handbags.
