Gecko Galz: Springtime in Paris


It's my DT day on the Gecko Galz blog and this month our challenge theme is La Vie Paris.

We also have the monthly Image Challenge, the monthly Christmas Image Challenge and the monthly vintage stamp 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.

Here are my makes:

First is a decoupaged and collaged card using characters from the Parisian Garden Kit set. They were fussy cut and set inside a rose adorned frame from the same set.I printed two of the frames, so that I could fussy cut the rose bough and butterflies and pop them on foam pads for dimension. 

Next I have a pretty lady from the Parisian Ladies collage set. 

She is framed in Vintage Frame 24 from the Vintage Frames Kit. I added a fussy cut butterfly.

I used another background from the Parisian Garden Kit and added a fussy cut lady from the Sweet Fashion collage set.

I distressed the edges of the papers and added some die cut flourishes to add a little texture.

And finally a digital collage using several png elements from the Parisian Garden Kit:

Below is the card I made as inspiration for the customer challenge and you can read about that here.

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 1st June with more Gecko Galz projects.
