Gecko Galz: Bump in The Night

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's October! 

We're well into autumn now - the leaves are falling and the nights are closing in. It's just the perfect time for cozying up and creating and crafting!  
 With that in mind, it's time for a new challenge at Gecko Galz.

Firstly, let me tell you that the annual Gecko Galz Blog Hop takes place later this month (October 26th - 30th).
We have 13 blogs for you to visit, each one offering a free Gecko Galz collage sheet and tons of inspiration. There's also the chance to win some fabulous prizes, so please do come and join us!


This month our customer challenge theme is 
''Bump In The Night".
 We would love to see your projects!

Here is my DT customer inspiration project:

I chose to make a spooky skull card using two collage sheets; Butterfly Wings and Day of the Dead. I resized the butterfly and skull images and cut them out. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink and glued the skulls onto the butterflies. The background paper is called Tombstone and is from the Never More Paper pack. I added some snippets of cheesecloth to the underside of each skull and some black gems were scattered randomly.  I matted the background onto orange card, then silver and attached it to a black card blank. Some small black gems were added as a border, and the orange alpha-beads to spell out Boo!

      Butterfly Wings                         Day of the Dead                       Never More Paper pack

That's all from me for now!

I hope you'll join our 'Bump In The Night' challenge. 
The winner and DT Favourite get a whopping $25 shopping spree at the Gecko Galz shop.

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!) 
Also if you sign up for the Gecko Galz newsletter, you'll be able to claim a free collage sheet each month.

Please pop over to the Gecko Galz blog to see the fabulous designs by the very talented DT.

We also have a Private Facebook Group where there are 4 monthly challenges, each with a collage sheet prize. Come and join us!

I'll be back on the 25th with more Gecko Galz projects.
