Faux Decoupaged Auricula (by Julie)

Hello, today I have a trio of cards that I have created using the fabulous Auricula Script cling mounted stamp.
I have cheated a little with this faux decoupage technique by stamping the image just once, colouring with pencils and then arranging a set of nesting dies on top of the design before passing it through a die cut machine. This will then leave you with a set of frames of your image.

 The next step is to cut the whole shape of the nesting dies  from plain card-stock and glue the stamped frames to its corresponding plain shape. You can then layer them up using silicone glue so that it looks like you have stamped the image 4 or 5 times.
Distress inks through elements of the 12 x12 Well Rounded stencil have been used to create the background. If you squint slightly I think you can almost say that the splat design from the stencil looks like the flower head, what do you think....have I got too much imagination?
The cards have been finished off with a With Love sentiment from the Mackintosh Sentiments clear stamp set.
Thanks for your visit today. You are most welcome to hop over to my blog for another Chocolate Baroque make, however please pop by again tomorrow for another Design Team member's creation.

  6. I can see the way your stencilled 'splatter' gives a sense of the flower heads, especially with the way you've matched the splatter colours to the colours of each flower head. An interesting technique with the die-cut layers too.
