DANCING GIRL CARD
Gecko Galz “Coquette Icons”
Gecko Galz “Coquette Papers”
Instructions: This card is part digitally created. I started with selecting one of the Gecko Galz “Coquette Papers” and arranging 2 images from the “Coquette Icons” onto the paper and printing it. I printed a third image (the pink border) separately. I cut and adhered the first piece to card stock and then cut and added the border piece. The heart was the last thing I added.
JE T'AIME CARD
Gecko Galz “Pretty Victorian” Collage Sheet Image
Gecko Galz “Coquette Icons 2”
Rogue Redhead Stamps “Je t’aime” stamp
Flower and pearl
Instructions: First I covered my card stock with the designer black lace pattern paper and distressed the edges. I printed and cut out the images from the “pretty Victorian” collage sheet and the “coquette icons 2” collection. I stamped “je t’aime” onto the coquette icons image. I arranged the images on the card stock and adhered them. I added the lace at the bottom and the flower and pearl at the top.
LOVE ME CARD
Gecko Galz “Royal Beauties 2” collage sheet
Gecko Galz “All you need is love” digital stamp set
Gecko Galz “Love Potion #9” Paper Pack
My Artistic Adventures Vintage Valentine Sweethearts Bitty Collection Paper Pack by Heather Hudson
Pink Paislee “Queen” stamp
Felt Lace Border
Instructions: Card stock was covered with one of the papers from the Vintage Valentine Sweethearts Bitty Collection and distressed with ink. The “love me” digital stamp was printed on one of the papers from the Gecko Galz love potion #9 paper pack. I cut out the digital stamp and the image from the royal beauties collage sheet. I stamped the queen stamp on another paper from the Vintage Valentine Sweethearts Bitty Collection paper pack. I arranged everything to my satisfaction and then glued it all down and finished with the border and washi tape.
We asked Michele the following question
WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU LOVE TO WORK WITH (besides Gecko Galz)?
Well I do love Gecko Galz – they have such a variety of wonderful images. But I also love images from Lunagirl, Alphastamps, and French-Kissed Postcards to name a few. I love rubber stamping and there are so many stamp companies to love – Rubber Moon, Rogue Redhead Designs, Leavenworth Jackson, 100 Proof Press and Character Constructions are some of my faves. Some of my favorite pens are Pro-markers and Molotow pens. Prismacolor pencils are a staple. Oh, now that I’ve discovered Scor-tape I can hardly live without it!
IN A FEW WORDS HOW WOULD YOU SUM UP YOUR STYLE?
I don’t know what my style is but what I love is collage. I love to take the beautiful images from Gecko Galz and other companies and put them together in a pleasing way, with papers, ephemera, embellishments, etc. It is like a puzzle to me and I get great satisfaction from taking all these different bits and making something entirely new with them.
