Decoupage using a Digital image

Decoupage is still very popular and can be done easily with rubber stamps. You can also decoupage with Digital images. This tutorial will show you how to do it easily.
The image I have used is Whimsical Girl Heart Garden from Bee Crafty.

This is part 1 of a 2 part tutorial ( both parts can be done on their own though)

1. First I printed the image 4 times using Photo Printing Wizard onto good quality white cardstock ( about 250 gsm)

2. I then coloured one image with my Promarkers. My 2 main colours are Mango and Bright Green. This isn't necessary as this is the base image which will be layered but I think it gives a more professional look.

3. I then cut out the image, in this case  using a Nestability die.

4. I have then coloured and cut out various parts of the  image from the remaining 3 images.

5. Here is a close up of the cut out images.

6. If you don't have many Promarkers and want to use shading on your images you can go over your colouring with the same colour to deepen it. In this case I have gone over the Mango with the same Mango pen on the left side of the image. I have done the same with the Bright Green. This will give the shaded effect

7. I have layered the pieces on top of each other with foam pads.

8. Next I have used Glossy accents over the heart shape flowers and sprinkled tiny yellow accent beads. The Glossy accents is clear and will act as a glue to hold the beads in place.

And there you have a decoupaged image made from a digital image.

I would love to read any comments you may have
