Smile Southwestern Gecko

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to celebrate with you the beginning New Year . One of my resolutions is to smile and take on life calmly. Between you and me, I have a fear of lizards but I love to work with them in paper or die cuts. So I started on the right foot!

To make this card I chose the Southwest Gecko Whisper. I cut it in fun foam and Whisper White paper and I gave it color with distress ink.

For the base and layers of the card I selected the Hello Honey, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White card stock. Over the whisper layer, I stamped twice one image from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set by Stampin Up using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink and I created the word Smile with a Jillibean Stencil and Cantaloupe Fire Works from Imagine Crafts.

To give dimension to the die cut Southwest Gecko Whispers I used fun foam behind the inked die cut and then I pasted it over the card. I completed the decoration of the card by adding two loops of black and white bakers twine and a mustard button. 

This is definitely my favorite not-so-scary lizard, so from now on you will see this cute animal in my creations!
