Gingerbread Man


For Day 8 of Beccy's Place Month long Holiday Card challenge the prompt was the letter G.
I have chosen G for gingerbread man as I LOVE gingerbread men and they are not just for Christmas!

The little guy is a digital stamp from the Festive Fare Sweet Treats pack by Kate Hadfield Designs. This is available as a stamp pack, a pre-coloured Doodles pack and a specially priced pack of all the designs.

At Kate Hadfield Designs there are so many fabulous sets it is really easy to get inspired to use them. There are digital stamps which you can colour, coloured versions you can scrapbook or make into digital layouts. Papers, patterned overlays and doodles galore. No matter what your skill level there are so many goodies to play with.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and used a blending brush to blend two browns together. I find this is a good way to add a stippling texture to thinks like fur, brick walls and cookies. I decorated with  glitter glue, glitter embedded gems for buttons and flat backed pearls for eyes.

The card has been covered with a lovely paper from Craft Sensations which has a metallic green diamond embedded into it. The gingerbread border is from a years old magazine freebie. I cut part of the design following the wavy lines and used as an accent to break up the checkerboard background.

Over at Kate Hadfield Designs there is lots going on. Kate is really generous with her freebies which are readily available. If you sign up to the newsletter you get access to an extra subscriber area the Doodle Den where there are loads more freebies. There is a gallery full of projects by the Creative Team and customers and so much inspiration for crafters and teachers. I would highly recommend you pop over there and join in the fun.
