My Little decoupaged garden


Morning all

Well I just about caught up with myself eventually - just!  So I;m here and on time with my MAWTT DT card for this week 
And the challenge is 

Decoupage

You can do any type of decoupaging you like  - just make sure we can see it
 (or give us a clue where it is decoupaged!!)

I decoupaged an image that I stamped out

The image is" My Little Garden" from the Paper shelter available here 



I decide to focus on the image for this card with just a ribbon and ribbon rose to embellish
I also kept the decoupage to just the pot of flowers - I had started off with an idea of decoupaged watering can, bees flowers - everywhere - then i reminded myself that less is more and I'm sure this card is the better for it!  I also used only black prismacolor pencil to give it a worn/vintage look.  I really wish I had photographed it before and after the pencil was applied because it really did bring this card to life - a tutorial for another day perhaps.
