Decoupage pink gem style

Howdy ho peeps hope we are all well out there! Firstly I have to apologise for my photos today, the light was so NOT playing ball here so they aren't so good!
Today I have a card using the cute Andy with skateboard decoupage sheet available at pink gem designs. I'm not a decoupage fan (ok slap me now!) only because I love to colour so much, but this little cutie just had to be made, isn't he fab?!
I have to say though I really like the way this has turned out (for a non decoupage fan!) it is a fabulous effect!

I have followed the sketch for my card over at cute card Thursday this wk and all of my layers are from the one print out of the decoupage sheet. My fabulous papers are also digi downloads from pink gem designs, the stripes and the gingham range. I have inked my edges with Tim's stormy sky, my twine, button, pearls and cardboard star are from stash.
Here you can hopefully see my numerous layers on the image.

I also want to enter this into Paperplays layers challenge, alphabets M for male challenge and Allsorts male card.
Thanks for coming by again, maybe I have converted a few non decoupage fans out there!!
Hugs to everyone

So sorry I haven't had much time for bloging this week with sorting out Facebook. I am a non decouopager too (is that a word?) but I had to do some for the last Beatrix Potter launch for CC and I did enjoy it. It won;t take the place of stamping though but makes a change and I love this fab card. Great layout. Marianne x

Woohoo Rebekah, I have the same thing, I prefer colouring as well bit this one is uber cute!! I so use decoupage sometime when I sit on the couch with hybby watching TV I meanwhile cut out decoupage picture. Of course I do have to make a card afterwards, that's why you sometimes see them coming up on my blog LOL! There's one coming on tomorrow :) Have a nice weekend, hugs, Frea
