Gingerbread trio

Hi there everyone.

Wow!  This month is passing by far too quickly.  I've another version of a card made with the Woodware gingerbread stamp today.  This time I stamped each of the gingerbread men onto a small square piece of card taking care not to ink up just one gingerbread man, then drew lines freehand around the outside.  Unfortunately the lighting was not very good for the photographs, the colours are actually brighter in real life.




Items used:

Stamp - Woodwear, Tag - LOTV
Coloured with ProMarkers
Papers - LOTV
Die - X-but
Gems, red flock, embossing powder, shiny stuff, Stickles, Glamour dust and ribbon from my stash.
