A Valentine Decoupage Card

I visited my local craft store today and noticed in the reduced to clear bin a set of Docrafts/Papermania decoupage papers.  I've never really tried this so for the sake of £1 I thought I would give it a go.  So while watching the final of The Great British Bake Off on TV this evening, I was playing with small pieces of pictures.

Here's a close up of the layering:

A dark shade of cardstock which matched the hearts on the image was used for the background.  I inked the edges and added some foxing marks to give it a more aged appearance.  I then mounted everything on a stone coloured background.

I can't imagine that i'll do more decoupage, it isn't really for me, but I enjoyed playing with it all the same.
