Summer of Color 2013; Week Six

I can't believe we're in our final week at Summer of Color at Kristin's blog, Twinkle, Twinkle.  This week's artist's choice color combo is sage and sepia. Once again, I'm working on my digital layering skills.



All Gecko Galz digital images cropped from various collage sheets:
image from preRafalite Jewels, July 2013 release
tag from Tag Your It
bouquet from Wild About Flowers
butterfly from Butterfly Wings
trim along bottom from a March ephemera sheet, probably a free one though the Yahoo group

I added text and some shadowing around the image.

I'm thrilled to say I won the random draw at Lunagirl Moonbeams challenge blog for my Gatsby entry and am anxious to choose some Lunagirl images with my gift certificate.

I'm entering this tag in the current Lunagirl challenge:  Using Digital  Backgrounds.  My background is a digital tag. Well, obviously, by now you realize that the entire tag is digital.... :)

Also entering this in Simon Says Stamp and ShowGood to Be Green  I played in Photoshop to alter the images to a sage shade of green.
