Pop Goes The Gecko

Hello.  Welcome.  So Kathy has a Pop Up Challenge goin' on and the theme is lines.  I loved this card that Kathy used a stitched die to add texture.  So I grabbed my Simon Says Stamps Stitched Die set and cut a line.  No, actually the very first thing I did was make popcorn!!  It's a pop-up challenge and Kathy says we need popcorn so I made a big bowl. 

Now this is a straight die that cuts a stitch line and an edge.  But I figured that was OK.  Two lines for the price of one!!  So I cut a few in a fan shape.  Ooh look, popcorn....

I did a watercolour wash with distress inks, cut the edge with the stitch die and mounted on a blue base card.  Then I cut a blue cog, added eyelash lines around the edge and some squiggly lines across the middle with my white gelly roll pen.  Then I added this cute little gecho from Your Next Stamp Happy Dance set.  And popcorn.
