Paintbox Poppets by Christine Haworth - die cut decoupage sheets

Paintbox Poppets are now in store at Foil Play! There are 10 different die cut decoupage sheets, featuring delightful designs of children by Christine Haworth.

These timeless images are beautifully detailed, the children have very expressive faces. The die cuts are very precise and detailed too. As with all die cut decoupage, no scissors are needed, all you need to do is pop out the pieces and layer them up with foam pads or silicone adhesive, to create eye catching toppers for your cards and craft projects.

Christine Haworth was born in Blackburn in Lancashire, England and has been drawing and painting since early childhood. After graduating with a degree in illustration Christine started her career as a freelance illustrator and a figurative artist. She presented her work at many exhibitions in the late 70's and 80's and received excellent reviews.

By the early 90's Christine had become an established artist and made the decision to branch out into licensing her designs under the Crisalis Brand. These have been licensed in many forms including collectable figurines, greeting cards, dolls, cross-stitch, decoupage, mugs and collectors plates.

Christine Haworth's Design range includes Paintbox Poppets, Faerie Poppets, Crisalis Classics, Meadow Cottage Bears, Dream Tide Fairies, Pigling the Pog and Angel Whispers. Christine's subjects are imaginative and nostalgic.
