My Time to Craft Challenge #267 Christmas Decoupage

Good morning! (At least, I hope it's morning when this post goes up, I'm at a wedding on Saturday!)

Our new Challenge at My Time to Craft is Christmas Decoupage. Now, Decoupage and Teabag Folding were the first 'techniques' I ever used on cards, long before I knew about Stamping or Blogs or Challenges! Cutting and manipulating and layering paper is so relaxing!

The foiled decoupage is by Dufex, a firm that sadly no longer is trading. It is quite detailed to cut out. I layered the pieces with silicon glue from Pinflair, and layered it on a piece of gold card to give a narrow border. The card base is Centura Pearl, embossed with a diamonds folder by Sizzix.

I hope you'll all go over to the Blog and see the fabulous Christmas Decoupage makes of my teamies! Then have a go yourself - decoupage seems not to be so common these days, but do try it if you haven't done any before, it's very satisfying!

Remember, it's Christmas Decoupage - that means it's Decoupage that has a Christmas theme lol!

Thanks for looking, and I hope you're all having a groovy weekend!

love Mags B x

Oooh this is fab Mags, what a great image and love the embossing!
Decoupage was one of the first techniques I ever used too ... though now I've a touch of arthritis in my fingers and hate all the fussy cutting!

Absolutely gorgeous, love the card embossing and of course your decoupaged angel.

Yep! one of my first was decoupage too, I felt oh! so clever doing it and never thought I would have the patience to cut all the fiddly bits.
