Rainbow Chloe & Decoupage

Hi there Donna here, I have a card to show you that I made using a couple of techniques.

Decoupage & out of the box.

The gorgeous image I have chosen to use is one of the new ones from Pink Gem Designs this little cutie is called Rainbow Chloe and you will receive 2 black & white images and two coloured images.

Although, like most of you, I LOVE to sit and colour in, the pre-coloured versions are perfect for decoupage as you can print off lots of the same image.

Firstly you will need to download the pre coloured image into word and then copy and paste three times, you should now have four images exactly the same when printed off.

Diecut one of the images using a die ( I used Spellbinders Labels 1) using the out of the box technique.

Choose which part of the image you wish to have peeking out of the die and cut around it, place the die into position with the cutting edge down (as shown below). When you put the die into place lift the section that will pop out so that it is above the die. This will stop it from being cut off when you run the die through the cutting machine.

Then you will need to cut out sections of the other three images to use as decoupage as shown below.

Then layer up the decoupage on to the main image and use to make into a card.

Hope you enjoyed my little project, make sure you pop back soon as my teamies always have something gorgeous to inspire everyone.
