My First Swap....

In October last year I joined Splitcoast Stampers Group after having been lurking there as a guest for some couple of years....

Well I thought I should become involved a little instead of just gleaning all the ideas and techniques without giving anything back. I am so glad I did.

I have taken a couple of spots in a swap (my very first) and thanks to Libby for letting me. Here are my efforts.

The above card is for the Reptile Section. He is a cute little gecko on white card base, layered with Pickle and Bamboo Bazzill Canvas cardstock, co-ordinating designer paper, with a focal of the gecko stamped on white card layered onto Splash Bazzil. Coloured with watercolour pencils and finished with co-ordinating twill and brads in the fancy corner cuts.

The second section is.... wait for it.... Kangaroo. Now what Aussie could resist this when sending to the USA? Very simple card on white base, full panel and half panel of Parakeet and Pinecone Bazzill, embossed with my fav tree and a focal of the little kangaroo. All panels are edged with distress ink to add dimension. Ribbon, ric rac and brads to embellish.
