Gecko Galz Fun!

Have you made your piece for this month's
Customer Challenge at
Gecko Galz yet?

Isn't this is a lovely theme?
You still have enough time left, you know!

I played quite a bit with some of the new
images at the
Gecko Galz Etsy Shop

 Here is a closer view

The Royal Couple:

The Bird King and Queen were fun to make, 
would you like to know how to make them?

First the Queen
(who should always be first, or course)
Use  the Sunset Beach  paper from the
La Isla Bonito Paper Pak for your background.
Over it place the bird, cropped from the
Blue Bird of Happiness Collage Sheet.
Erase around the bird and add a drop shadow.
Add jewels to her crown
(by Dreams 4ever Designs)
Add a bling circle between the bird and background
(by Gennifer Burnett)
Merge all visible layers, apply crosshatch filter
Add wordart (Studio Tangie) and
an overlay (Tracy Martin Designs)
and VOILA!
You're done!

and then her hubby is just as easy:
Use a background paper
of your choice from the
Flower Power Paper Paper Pak.
Place the bird over top,
cropped from the Blue Bird of Happiness Collage Sheet
Erase around him, just like you did with his wifey
Add a corner scroll brush (unknown) and
apply a glitter style
Place some diamonds between him and the background paper
(by Jofia Devoe)
and and overlay border (unkown)
Put a jewel on his crown
(by Cajoline)
He only gets one, he's not
a diva like his wife.
Now, wordart
(by Sissy Sparrow)
and he's ready to go out on the town!

(I used PSE13 for the digital pieces, BTW)

I also made some ATC's, the fairyland digital stamps
are absolutely wonderful for you to sit and colour and then embellish!

And I made a final one with your free digital stamp for this month!

and here is your free stamp.
