The Gecko Galz December Challenge is Here!

Welcome Crafty Friends!  It's time for a new Gecko Galz Customer Challenge!  Please join us for the current challenge "Far Away Places", accepting entries from December 1st - December 29th.  There is only one rule.  You need to use at least ONE product from Gecko Galz.  It can be one of the free products, stamps, collage images, or digital background papers.  The winner will receive a $25 Gecko Galz shopping spree!

  Don't forget to stop by the Gecko Galz blog to see what the rest of the team created this month.  We hope to inspire you to enter the challenge and win!  Don't forget that throughout the month, the Gecko Galz blog features samples created by the team using the new products for that month.

Below is a sample card that I have created for this month's "Far Away Places" challenge.

I began with a pre-folded kraft card base 5 x 6.5.  I printed out the gorgeous collaged background digital design paper from the Roads Less Traveled paper pack at 8 x 10.  I cut out the portion of the paper that I wanted to use.  I chose to cut the paper so that the red would serve as a backdrop for my image.  The image of the girl is from the Snow Maidens collage sheet set.  I fussy cut her from the background so it would appear that she was walking across the map behind her, and adhered her with pop dots for dimension.  I cut out small images from another paper that I'd printed from the same digital paper pack, and framed them with postage stamp frames, and adhered with pop dots.   I placed the stamp with the New York theme so it would appear that she was looking at it and making her decision on which of life's paths she should travel.  I found the sentiment on google.  I added more details such as the tiny buttons, and some glass beads around her feet.  Thanks for looking!
