A Blossoming Beauty

Hello everyone
Time to share another Gecko Galz DT sample.  This sample relates to one of the Gecko Galz January product releases, the lovely My Fair Lady set.  I have already shared one card I made with this set and found I couldn’t resist making another card and yes, once again playing with colour!myfairladylynne

Gecko Galz My Fair Lady
Gecko Galz Butterfly Wings
Darkroom Door Lace stamp set
Luminarte Twinkling H20s
TCW Mini Ledger Stencil
Prima blossoms
Ranger Glossy Accents
Extras:- low gloss printer paper, watercolour paper, texture paste, old jewellery, vintage lace, blue lace.

Print My Fair Lady onto low gloss cardstock. Lay aside for the moment.
Use stencil and texture paste to create pattern on watercolour paper followed with a wash of colour with Twinkling H20s. Adhere panel to cardbase. Also apply Twinkling H20s to vintage lace. Once dry adhere to cardbase. Now adhere Gecko Galz image, trimming with lace and jewels from old jewellery. Stamp Elegance onto scrap of watercolour paper, ink edges and adhere to right of image, embellishing with paper flowers and butterflies.
I used butterflies which were left over from previous Gecko Galz DT samples, they were too lovely to not make use of.
Adhere the butterfly which had been printed onto transparency to top corner of image.

I looked to the colours of the lady who I believe is the beautiful Lily Elsie, to bring those colours throughout the card.17 March 041The shimmer hasn’t translated but I used a combination of paints for the background, paints which also included Twinkling H20s, yes I continue to twinkle away, seeming to struggle to step away from the H20s at the moment! I even went as far as to paint the vintage lace with the paints to add that band of colour.
I always like a little bit of stamping somewhere and this Darkroom Door word suited the image.   The flowers I’ve had for the longest time. not my colours  but I forced myself to use, bringing even more colour to this card. them on this card.17 March 035It leaves me to say that I always appreciate  the time you take out of your day to stop by and visit my Blog and to leave a comment.

    Utterly captivating Lynne. Beautiful and striking image and I love how you have so softly matched the hues in your background. The stronger coloured flowers and butterflies add a perfect finish. Have a good week. Nicola x

    Beautiful. You really are achieving wonderful effects with the H2Os. I keep thinking I should get mine out again. I bought them ages ago, but I have never achieved the effects you do. Your work is inspirational, Lynne. Julie Ann xxx

    Dear Lynne,
    your sample is so adorable, with the lovely colours of spring you used. The texture of plaster, in soft rosa and cream and the simple pattern , makes the image stand even more sharp, and beautiful. The butterfly in transparent printing is a wonderful idea, and looks like it just landed. The H2Os I have never tried ,but I love what you did with it, my friend.
    Thursday hug from Dorthe,

    Beautiful soft colours on your card, Lynne, and I like the full coloured flowers as a contrast. The lace on the card is a perfect combination with the lace on the lady her dress, Realy, you made a gorgeous card.
