sunken decoupage card - strictly party

Hello everybobs xx this card has been done for my stepdaughters 21st birthday xx
She lives in malta and i thought the image was lovely lke the maltese beauty she is with long dark hair x
ive made this using papermanias strictly party pack and a sunken decoupage effect...its not easy to do sunken decoupage BUT nice effect when done...

you need to make up your matted layers for the front of your card but NOT attach them to the card YET..

then you need to make up your decoupage and measure how big the image is...

next decide where you want it to be on your card front and cut a shaped hole that is slightly smaller than your decoupage image (so it covers it and shows no edges) i used a nestie but as my card front was an 8x8 card and wouldnt go through my cuttlebug i cut the shape... drew round it on my card front then cut it out manually....

now lay the card front onto your card blank... and draw the outline through your shape onto your card... this is where you glue down your decoupage picture... then on the back of your card front place strips of sticky back foam from a roll OR lots of foam pads that will raise the front of your card before attaching it making sure the pic is in the middle of the hole you made.

the effect you then get is the sunken decoupage,,, it dosent raise up above your card but is in its own little alcove,,,, a real nice effect xxxx

First ever scrapbook page.....

Ive decided to do a scrapbook of my daughters prom so she has a keepsake of her lovely day and someplace to stick all those pretty pictures x
This is the first page and it depicts the alterations on the dress.. it had to be taken in from a size 12 to a size 8 and there was a lot of sewing involved. also there was another 12 meters of netting added to the underskirts!  on the scrap page whish shows the beading being done, ive added a piece of the netting from the dress, and some of the thread and seed beads used.
This is the front cover of the scrapbook.. showing my fave picture from those taken.
