* Gecko Galz: Sea of Dreams


As we start the month of July, we have a brand new customer challenge over at the at Gecko Galz blog. 
This month the challenge theme is Sea of Dreams and you can interpret this any way you choose. The lucky winner will win a $25 store voucher.

Here is my inspiration project:

I made a couple of notecards with a sea theme using images from the Sea Life collage set, added to background paper from the new Tortuga Bay ATC set. I added hessian trim which resembles fishing net and cheesecloth along with die cut sea weed and a flower. I tucked a seahorse charm into each and added an inspirational sentiment from the Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker pad.
These would also look nice popped into a little box frame, as a keepsake.

I distressed the edges of the papers and the kraft card mats. The textural elements add to the seashore vibe. I inked white card with Distress Oxides for the seaweed die cuts and flowers.

The little pearl in the centre of the flower is in keeping with the sea theme.

That's all for now!
I hope you'll join our Sea of Dreams challenge where the winner will get a $25 shopping spree at the Gecko Galz shop.
