Jigsaw swap pieces

As part of a collaboration on the Secret Swappers, I have decorated 12 jigsaw pieces themed on the month of May.  The idea is that everyone taking part has the same piece from 12 different jigsaws to decorate on their chosen month, and once they are all swapped back we will each have a 12 piece jigsaw where each month is decorated by a different person.

I chose May because it was still available, it is my birthday month and it happens to be my favourite!  I planned to buy stamps or images based around May Day/ Maypole dancing/the May Queen.  Unfortunately I couldn't find what I wanted so had to make do with what I had, so one flower stamp was used as Hawthorn/mayblossom, and a flapper girl stamp became the May Queen and was crowned with another stamp.  Oh, and the bee represents the fertility aspect of the May Day festival!  So, lots of ink spraying, stamping and painting with twinkling H2Os.
