My Time To Craft 'Decoupage' Challenge

Good morning all, I have had to schedule this post today (so hope mr blogger is playing ball) as I went to see Strictly Come Dancing last night and as yet have not arrived home. I stayed with my parents because we were due to arrive back at around midnight and I didn't fancy driving down the dark country lanes at the time on my own.

Anyhow onto today's dt card and it is for this week's challenge at My Time To Craft where we have been challenged to create using 'Decoupage' you can either use the traditional decoupage as I did or you can use a stamped image layered up.

I haven't made decoupage in years and didn't like the thought of having to cut all those pieces out so I sent the image to my cameo and got that to do the work for me lol. As you can see it went off a little in place but that was because the image is so light it had a job to pick up the lines. (I think a little more playing is needed). I didn't add much else as the image is quite large.


Supplies:-
6" Scalloped Card Blank - Boyes
Card Stock - Bazzill
Decoupage - Humpfrey's Corner C.D
Foam Pads - Stix 2 Stash
Lace - Stash

Here is a close view of the image so you can see the decoupage a little better.

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
Delicious Doodles - No Designer Paper
Crafty Ann's - Tie A Yellow Ribbon
Craft Us Crazy - Getting Cutting

Thanks for stopping by, I think I have caught up with most of you since I got home from holiday but if I haven't I will over the weekend. Please pop by the challenge blog to see what the other girls made.
