* Gecko Galz: Ballerinas


Today is my Gecko Galz DT day and I am sharing two cards with ballerinas, as this month the Gecko Galz Customer Challenge theme is Ballerina Girl.

I love these images I chose from the Tiny Dancer collage set. I teamed them with some papers from the Paper Roses

The green and peachy-pink colours are some of my favourites. 

Some sequinned tulle was used as ribbon through the centre of this first card. I overlaid a piece of cheesecloth and popped the image on foam tape for dimension. I added some beautiful lace that was gifted to me by my crafting friend, Janet Stokes, and I made some flowers and die cut some leaves. The papers are distressed around the edges and kraft card was used as a mat. The sentiment is from a Tim Holtz sticker pad.

My second card has some gold mesh fabric beneath the image. A piece of pink organza ribbon was added along with a die cut scalloped border. I overlaid some ivory ribbon flower trim and added a tiny pearl to the centre of each one. Again I made some paper flowers and added a sprig of natural dried flowers which I dyed with Oxide inks.

Here are the Gecko Galz products I used for my cards:

 I made an altered notebook for my September 1st project. You can find more details about that here
