Gecko Galz: Kingfisher and From Russia With Love


Today it's my turn to show the card samples I made for Gecko Galz.

We'd love you to join in the Gecko Galz January challenge. 
The theme is 'Let it Snow'. 

The only rule is that you must use at least one Gecko Galz product (this can be one of the freebies, so check back through the blog and also look at the freebies on the Pinterest page, or of course you can buy at the Etsy store!)

Here are the cards I made:

The beautiful Kingfisher image is from the Winter's Garden collage set. I adhered the Kingfisher image at an angle to a piece of ivory card, then distressed its edges and inked them with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo.
The background paper is called Snowflake and is from the Winter Wonderlands Paper Pack. I also distressed these edges and inked them. The image was adhered on foam pads to the background and a ribbon attached along the bottom. A glittered sentiment from Papermania was inked and added along with a jute bow.

For this card, I used an image from the From Russia With Love digital collage set. The edges were distressed and inked and set atop some frayed gauze (as I didn't have any cheesecloth). The background papers are again from The Winter Wonderlands Paper Pack, this time I used Snowflakes and Snow Day Too.  Two felt snowflakes were adhered to the background, then the image was popped on foam pads.  I typed and printed the sentiment then used a label die to cut it out,  inked its edges and added  a clear crystal gem. This was popped on foam pads too.

My other card for this month was featured on 1 January, and you can find it here.
