Please enjoy this free Gecko Galz Collage sheet “Pixie Magic”
Here are my creations...I hope you enjoy!
I used brown sugar Baker's Twine, Penelope vintage lace, burgundy leaves and newsprint candi from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I inked all my edges with Ranger's Vintage photo distress ink and the text boxes with fired brick. Here is the back of the tag, which I created the digital paper myself in GIMP.
Here is another tag. The back of it is similar to the one above.
Again I used the burgundy leaves, vintage lace and brown sugar baker's twine as well as Sheer Champagne ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I took the Gecko Galz image and altered the color and flipped it, to work it into my own digital design.
I found a black box with magnetic closure at the Dollar Tree. I used the Gecko Galz freebie collage sheet and some music paper from the Graphic fairy to create my oval. The beautiful brown butterfly was a gift from Leanne, the owner of Gecko Galz. We were swap buddies in our Gecko Galz Yahoo Group, you should come and check us out!
I used pretty much the same embellishments but added some ivory mulberry roses and burgundy rosettes are from Pro 31 Designs and Leaves from I am Roses.
Here is another view of my Love Letters Box
How about a look at the inside. I took another one of the Pixies, eliminated the background, altered her color and then put her on my own digital paper. Stamp mark is an image from the Graphic's fairy.
Here is a look at the inside bottom.
I also have a couple cards to share with you. This time I used the same large burgundy ribbon behind my image. I accented with the may arts leaves in moss green, and yellow pom pom trim as well as some yellow rosettes. I used some more of the newsprint candies, this time I inked them fired brick.
Here is my last card.
Isn't she a beauty!! I just love this freebie sheet from Leanne!
This time I added some Sheer blue ribbon and some seed beads and other beads to embellish my card. I love the colors in this one :0)
