Gecko Galz Spotlight.....

Good morning everyone!

Today I have a couple pieces to show you!

I am in the spotlight over at Gecko Galz this month!

I was given these three pieces...
an ephemera image, a stamp file and a paper file.
All free, here, this month at Gecko Galz!

Right away I liked the paper file!
I don't know what it is about it but I seem to be drawn to written papers...so many possibilities!
And that stamp is so cute!
The ephemera image had me stumped for a little bit though!

After mulling it all over for a little bit this is what I came up with.....

I printed two of the ephemera images and fussy cut one.
I got out my favorite pop dots and added the balloon on top of the full image, 
then added some butterflies leaving their wings free to flap in the wind.

I layered the paper and the image with a green cardstock.
I put a couple of lacy trims across the center of the background piece, 
then more pop dots were used to put my image on top 
and finished it off with a bow (made with my bow-it-all).

Below is a close up of the pop dotted balloon image.

Although it was not an image I normally would have been drawn to I am so happy that I got to use it...
I am happy with the card I created with it!
Just goes to prove you should step outside of your box once in a while...
you may be surprised with the results...
I was!


Next I made an ATC.

I cut a piece of a doily and added it to one side of the background paper.
I printed the stamp on a piece of paper from this months Solarium paper pkg and glued that on top of the doily.
I added a piece of scrap trim to the top of the atc.
The trim was sprayed with Cosmopolitan Pink spray from Lindy's Stamp Gang.
I added the pearl trim and 
a bow I made with a piece of seam binding and my bow-it-all.

I am playing bingo with Jenny with this atc.....
I used the top row...pink (paper), lace (trim) and ribbon (bow)


And my last project is this tag.

I printed the stamp on another piece of the Solarium paper pkg, 
then I cut all my papers into a tag shape.
I layered the brown cardstock, matted with the stamped paper, 
on top of the script paper, with pop dots.
I fussy cut the chick image from the Beautiful March collage sheet and glued him down to stand on top of the stamp frame.
I thread some brown & white bakers twine around the matted image and added a twine bow.
I used dots of glue and glitter around the edges of the stamped image tag.
I finished off with a bit of trim for the bottom of the tag,
a brown seam binding bow and 
a piece of wire I shaped into an Easter egg
(twisting the ends of the wire in the front of the tag)!
