I have dipped into the world of non die-cut decoupage for the first time this week and have discovered I really like it!
Bee Crafty have a wide variety of beautiful non die-cut decoupage sheets, covering all manner of occasions. For my decoupage taster session I chose a "Good Luck" sheet (a bargain at only 25p!) which had three lovely images on it.
First of all I carefully cut out all of the images using a pair of small embroidery type scissors.(I took my time as I didn't want to lose a ladybird leg! Then I used 3d foam pads to layer the relevant pieces together. I would have preferred to use silicon glue but I had run out! (Note to self - pick some up next time I am in Bee Crafty - lol) Then I chose my card stock and backing paper from my paper stash and set about making the following three cards.
I made three extra ladybirds for this card - just a red card Candi drawn on with a black pen, with a few legs added once they were on the card!
For this one I mounted the brick tag shape onto some cream card stock and added a green satin bow and some card Candi.
This one was just simply matted and layered onto some green card stock and some green gingham paper.
I was very impressed with both the quality of the decoupage paper and with the number of cards I could make from one 25p sheet of decoupage. I am off to make some more now! Till next time - happy crafting x
