I love to create my own decoupage, it's really quite easy to do. Even from digi images. Here I have created a decoupaged topper from the Santa 1 digi from the Scribble & Scrap Shop.
I started by opening up my MCS program and importing the Santa image. I shrunk the image to the size I wanted then copied and pasted it so I had four identical digis. I wanted to work quickly so I used the digital stamp tool and roughly cut out a bit of the background on each image until I was left with just the lower leg closest to the front. I arranged the cropped images on the page and printed it out.
The next stage was to colour the digis. I chose traditional colours and used Promarkers. As you can see, I didn't colour the areas which wouldn't be seen once the decoupage was layered up. And I ignored the areas I hadn't cropped that wouldn't be used for the decoupage.
Once coloured, I cut all the images out, removing the pieces I didn't want. Here I have laid them onto a piece of card for the photo. They will be layered up starting with the top right image and working anti-clockwise.
Finally the decoupaged image layered up with foam pads. Decoupage is a simple but effective way to add depth to a card and can be achieved very easily.
You will have to wait until Sunday to see what I did with my decoupaged Santa where it is on my DT card for the next Scribble & Scrap challenge.
