The minute my daughter saw this image (on another project I made) she said Momma I love that, make me something with this on it! So I made her this journal using the digital stamp from the Vintage Christmas Digital Stamp Collection (25 stamps) by Gecko Galz. I printed the stamped image on glossy photo paper and colored in the berries on the girl with Ranger SGG01-836 Stickles Glitter Glue 0.5 Ounce (Google Affiliate Ad) along with the outline. The background paper is from the Grandma's House Paper collection. I used a Stampin Up punch for the ring holes but ended up gluing some extra pieces in as the holes were not the same. I used my Perfect Square tool to cut the image evenly.
I really love working with these Gecko Galz sets, there is still so much more to show you. Speaking of Gecko Galz, there is a Yahoo group, I would love for you to join the fun there. Plenty of challenges with great prizes, free images every month and all the Galz there are so nice (tell them I sent you)!
I love how this looks but I wonder now if I colored her berries in the wrong color. I noticed after it was all said and done that the leaves on the boy are the sharp pointy leaves of the Holly and I don't know what kind or color plant the girl is made of, if anyone knows please give me a shout out. I do know the faces on the two of them are gorgeous! Thanks to all who have correctly identified the leaves for me as Mistletoe. I already have a gift card holder colored in the same way but I will be sure to do another project with the right colors. I think I was somewhat following my creative instinct but once it was done I realized there is a reason my thumbs are not green, ha ha!
Thanks for looking. ~Diane
