Decoupage

Evening, all! While our Internet was down last week I tidied my craft hovel (again!) and came across a set of decoupage sheets that were free with a magazine. The sheets are from Crafts U Print and I used two of them to make some quick cards.

The first is a New Home card:


The top flap has been cut round with my Xacto knife and the decoupage has been put together with thin foam pads to give just a slightly raised effect:


A bit of gold stickles and it was done!

The second card is very Art Deco:


The background paper is made by me: I sponged Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans Distress Inks onto card, then stamped with a small flourish stamp in Weathered Wood and also Silver Color Box ink. Again I used thin foam pads:


I used Waterfall Stickles this time, along the borders of the image and the sentiment.

It took longer to cut out all the elements than to assemble the cards!

Thanks for looking, see you tomorrow with 2 DT cards - if Mr Blogger posts them for me, that is!

Stay cool!
