Gingerbread Treat



At the Outlawz Progressive Freebie Challenge this month we have been given this super cute image from Twinkle Lane Designs. This is a digi company I was not previously aware of and there are some gorgeous images. I am slightly partial to a little gingerbread man so  absolutely adore this one.


I have coloured the image with Promarkers and a green Sharpie for the main mug. I have started to put my colours with the image as I think it is interesting to see how many colours you use to blend with. I know it was helpful to me when I started colouring to see what people have used. I initially coloured the snowflake with a gold gel pen but then when the card was made decided it needed glitter so used silver Stickles and added gold liquid pearls paint for the icing on the gingerbread man.


I used the latest sketch from Cheerful Sketches for the basic layout. The papers are from a great Christmas theme paper pad that was from The Works last year. The decorative strips have been recycled from old cut up shop bought Christmas cards. I have a family friend who saves them for me and I re-use any embellishments that may be useful on cards I make. The sentiment has been cut using a die from Crafter's Companion and a mat of gold card underneath. 

Finally I added a 3D sticker embellishment I got in a QVC TSV a million years ago. I used my very first Sizzix Originals Die Gingerbread Man and made him with shrink plastic some years ago. It still amazes me how such a large die ends up being so much smaller. I used a little piece of red glitter card to highlight the hearts.

There are loads of Christmas in July challenges at the moment. I completely missed out on these last year as I was working all the and getting ready to go on a cruise. Can't believe a year has passed this quickly, it's definitely been a year of change for many reasons.
