* Gecko Galz: Wild West Sweetheart

 Hello, hello!

June is here and we have sunshine in the NW of England!

 I hope where you are the Covid restrictions are easing up a little and that you are all safe and well.

This month at Gecko Galz we have a Wild West Sweetheart challenge theme. I chose a wonderful image and frame from the Ride Em Cowgirl Digital Kit, along with a Calamity Jane quote for my sentiment. I decided to make some faux fence panelling for my background.

I opened the bottom and side of the frame using a craft knife and inserted the fussy cut girl who is popped on foam to give her some dimension. I made a panel of wood from white card: first I scored lines at 0.5 inch intervals, then I went to town with all my grungy brown oxides, Frayed Burlap, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo and included a little Antique Linen,Smoked Hickory and Speckled Egg, swiping them from top to bottom, direct to card. I am happy with the result!. I made two smaller panel to act as mats for the image and quote.
I added some delicate lace trim which contrasts well with the rustic wood, and some red gingham hearts for the wild west sweetheart.

A fabulous kit of png icons (images for layering together), papers and stamps

That's all for now!
