Railroad Flirt

Hello dear friends, the final piece in the June spotlight for Gecko Galz is the piece below that I call  "Railroad Flirt" . The unusual thing about this is the embellishment I used...trashed wine wrappers! Before you uncork a bottle of wine, you have to remove the foil wrapper. I noticed that they were embossed and colorful and decided to use them in this piece! That's what I call trash to treasure!

To make this card, I started with the  vintage luggage tag printed paper and stamped the world images in the corners. It was layered on copper then navy paper. The central images include the Free June Ephemera of the" train" that I watercolored, June beauty from the "Her beautiful color"  Gecko Galz sheet and the Rail Way "Flirt" paper. The accents include some old hat netting, an old flag, gold brads and wine wrappers from unsealing wine bottles. They are the circles that look like seals. Stickle and watercolor accents were added last.

Hope you will turn trash to treasure this week.
Sincerely, Gerri
"Railway Flirt"
