Choppin' Charlotte

This is another great decoupage sheet from Marij Rahder. I call this one Choppin' Charlotte, although that is not her real name (they don't have names) I thought it suited her. This is another great male card and although you all know I hate making male cards as they are so limited in what images you can actually use, these images make it so easy.

This is a close up of the decoupage so that you can see it in more detail and so that you can see the layers involved. For this image I only actually used three of the five layers because I was getting tired and a little bored (I have to admit) of all the cutting involved. Well... I did say earlier that decoupage wasn't my most favourite 'craft time' past time.

And another close-up from a different angle. I couldn't resist using this little wooden mouse. I've had him for what seems like ages and just couldn't find the right card to use him on, well on this one, he's watching Charlotte cut down the trees, so I guess he's a field mouse. Do they have forest mouses??? Anyway, I thought he was the perfect finishing touch, so he's staying!!

Thank you Sarn. You know how much I hate making male cards, especially if their decoupage, but this was so easy to make.
