CFM #17 - decoupage

Good afternoon all. I hope you are all warm and dry as we are near Derby :o)
This is my entry for the CFM challenge - decoupage. As I am currently making cards for boys I decided that this fab train from Elizabeth O Dulemba would possibly make a good decoupage and I am quite pleased with the result.

As you can see, I decided on the octogon shape because I wanted another chance to use my newest nesties :o)

This is a close up to show the layers as they aren't apparent on the main image.
Base card is grey Bazzill, red and yellow card is from stash. Main image I printed 3 times and used 2 of them for cutting all the bits out of after colouring with copics. Greeting is  a Peachy Keen stamp which I bent round to fit in the smoke.
I did construct the decoupage using silicone glue, but it showed through the top layer spoiling it completely. I was nearly in tears but decided to stop snivelling and do it all again, this time building it up with foam pads. Thank goodness I hadn't built it up on the card itself or that would have been more rubbish!
Anyway, I am rambling so I'd better shut up before they come and take me away :o)
