* Gecko Galz: Paris


May is here and we have a new customer challenge at the Gecko Galz blog challenge. The theme this month is La Vie Paris.

We also have the monthly Image Challenge and the monthly Christmas Image Challenge, as well as 4 Facebook challenges. 
We hope you can find some time to join in the fun.

The winner of the Customer challenge will get a $25 Gecko Galz Etsy Store voucher and the runner up a $12 voucher. There are plenty of free Gecko Galz images if you don't already own any. Each blog post has a free image to collect and, if you sign up for the monthly newsletter, there is the chance to claim a free collage set each month.  Also if you make any purchase of $2 or more you receive a free image.

I made a decoupaged card for my customer inspiration project:

The background is paper from the C'est La Vie ATC sheet - I digitally resized it to fit my 5 x 7 inch card. I also digitally added the Eiffel Tower silhouette..
The ladies, from the Sweet Fashion collage set, were also resized, to give the illusion of perspective, then fussy cut and inked around the edges. They are popped onto foam pads to give dimension.
I added two faux French stamps from La Vie En Rose and a shop bought sentiment circle which I inked.

C'est La Vie               Sweet Fashion

That's all for now!
I hope you'll join our La Vie Paris challenge where the winner will get a $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 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 and get first claim on the monthly $1 deals!

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

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

I'll be back on the 20th May with more Gecko Galz projects.
