End Of Month

We are closing in on the end of June and that means the "Father and Brothers" theme on Lunagirl is ending.  You still have a couple of days to enter the challenge though.  Below are a couple of cards I made to end out the month.

Theses cards are similar as both have a collage-looking background.

June Theme

The June Customer Challenge for Gecko Galz is "Man O Man".  Won't you join in?  This is a tiny example of some of their masculine images.
 
 
 
This time I decided to play a little with the freebie by putting her on a watercolor tag.
 Here is your free stamp for June from Gecko Galz.

New Month; New Challenge

With the beginning of June Lunagirl Moonbeams began a new themed challenge.  It is very appropriately "Fathers and Brothers.  My card this time emphasizes "Brothers".  I used a number of papers to make up the background on this card.

"Mothers and Sisters"

The Lunagirl Moonbeams continue the theme "Mothers and Sisters" for the month of May.  This time I made a card using the sisters part of the theme.
This card pokes fun at the sisters playful mood.  The mat for the Lunagirl image is woven cardstock.

Mothers and Sisters Challenge

Here we are at the beginning of another month and that means there is a new challenge at Lunagirl

Since Mother's Day is in May, Karen is using the theme "Mothers and Sisters". on her website.  Go to the above link and enter.  She has also posted the rules there and they are also listed on my previous site.
 
My first sample for this challenge is a typical classic card.  The image of the mother is from the many images that Karen carries at the Lunagirl website.  As added embellishment I used a butterfly and some sequin flowers.  The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs.

    My Day at Gecko Galz


    Today I am being featured on Gecko Galz Scrapbooking website.  Here are a couple of samples I made  using images from their store.



    I really like this card and had someone picked out who would receive it, but my daughter's dog got hold of it and tore it apart.  I manage to salvage all of it with the exception of the background designer paper.  I was going to put it back together,  but I do not have any more of that designer  paper. Oh well, I won't let him in my workroom any more!

    The lacey part under the image is a recycled piece of an old commercial card.

    The tag uses one of the jewel domino images.  The bottom of the tag looks like part of it is missing.  It is not really as I made my tag from a paper I made using the Gelli plate and it just happens that  there is a white area at the bottom.  Also for an embellishment I used 4 rows of rhinestones.    The black and white spray is a piece of chipboard.  The bow at the top is silver and seems to pick up a reflection of the purple acrylic paint.

    Thanks to the generosity of Gecko Galz here is a free image for you.

    Spring: In Suspension

    "Spring:  In Suspension" is what I named this mixed media canvass.  It uses watercolors, acrylics, and Stickles.  I did this a little while back and I am just posting.  I really enjoyed creating this.

    Gecko Galz Today

    Today is my day at Gecko Galz;  With packing and moving I have been only able to make a couple of things this time.  One reason is exhaustion and the other not being able to find all my supplies.
     
    The background on both of these tags is watercolor powder.  This is something fairly new for me and I love using it. 
     
    I put a little humor with this  tag.  I gave the girl an egg body and the flowers seem to be in her hair.  I decided to leave her face back and white so it would stand out from the colorful egg body..

     
    Below is the freebie that Gecko Galz has graciously given me to share.  Enjoy
