A Little Ginger

Hello.  Welcome.  I tried my hand at a few edible christmas goodies this year that I hadn't tried before and, as with all experimentation, there were successes and failures and everything in between.  It has prompted me to consider Project Life again as a fun way to record such happenings and I decided to make a start with a title card for my proposed baking layout.  Well, you gotta start somewhere.......

I was lucky enough to win this little Papirdesign Gingerbreadman die from the Advent calendar of the ladies at Project Life Norge. I would like to say a big thank you to them for it and also for all the work they put into the Advent Calendar posts.  I started with a Bekky Higgins 6x4 journal card.  I grunged up the edges and the card with brown Archival ink.  I cut the little ginger and the Sizzix letters and numbers from a scrap of brown Bazzill dot card.  The white bits were cut using dies in the Gingerbread Man set from scraps of white card.  Then I added some white half pearls from Papirdesigns, colouring the two I used for his eyes with a black Promarker.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
