What a great way to start the year - Josephine Wall Decoupage
This is a large 8x8 square card that I used a We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper on, I then placed a pale peach matt on to the card again with a scallop edge to it.
I then made two seperate panels the first panel to the back and right of the card consisted of a burnt orange cardstock run through my cuttlebug with a circular embossing folder, I then sanded down the embossed image to distress the image and display the paler peach core within the cardstock. This was then matted on to a piece of lime green cardstock and put to one side, I then added the sentiment which was also mounted on the burnt orange and lime cardstock on the top centre of this panel.
The second panel is the one to the bottom left of the card, this was compiled off the base Josephine Wall decoupage image (available from Joanna Sheen) on a matt of burnt orange cardstock and then the coordinating lime green cardstock.
I then used my cuttlebug to cut out the flowers and swirl using marianne designs and the offcuts of the coordinating card stock. As you can see I placed one swirl going to the bottom right of the card and a further swirl going to the left of the embossed panel which I adhered before placing the first panel on top using glue gel. I placed the second panel on to card using glue gel and then completed the decoupage image, with the final hummingbird fairy and butterfly layer being given some glitz from spray and shine.
I then placed all the die cut flowers on the card using glue gel for dimension and to secure the cream pearl centres. Finally to balance the card I added three pearl accents to the bottom left hand corner.
