* Gecko Galz: Country Charm; Dragonflies and FarmYard Animals

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I'm showing my May Gecko Galz samples.

This month our Customer Challenge  is Country Charm and these are my projects on this theme.

First up are my Dragonfly cards.

The images are from the Darling Dragonflies collage sheet and the background paper is Courtly Splendour from the Tudor Rose Collection. 
The images were cut out and matted onto black card. The patterned paper was matted onto black card too. I always ink the edges of the papers and images so that no white edges show and also it pulls the colours together.
Before the paper was adhered to the card base, lace was added and attached at the back with double sided tape.  The sentiments are from the Charming Words set - these were cut out and inked in Vintage Photo distress ink. 

The dragonfly embellishment is made from one of the Darling Dragonflies images. It was fussy cut from card and the edges inked. Then it was heat embossed with clear powder to make it glossy and stronger. A silver coloured dragonfly charm was also added on the lacy border.

 Some ink-dyed cheesecloth was added beneath the 'Beauty' sentiment on this card. The dragonfly has holographic glitter applied to it's body.

Here are the products I used:

Next are my farmyard notelets:

These were super quick and easy to make! 

They are simply collage sheet images, matted onto black card and mounted onto some of my favourite Gecko Galz patterned paper (Jungle Fever from the Isla Bonita pack)  which is also mounted onto black card.  I find that layering onto black card really makes the colours pop.  Before adhering onto the card base, I wrapped some baker's twin around the patterned paper and tied a bow.

I also made two vintage flower and butterfly cards which you can read about here:
