So that title was a little more naughty than I originally thought, lol!
Anyway, for this Christmas creation I decided to call on the Brother Scan N Cut to help me out.
I was hoping to add some traditional themes to my tree therefore I definitely wanted a Ginger Bread Man. I had a look through the design library on the Scan N Cut and found the perfect man (no, stop laughing – there is such a thing).
After selecting the shape from the library of designs I cut twelve from plain white cardstock.
To add the first lot of ginger colouring I used the GB7 Spectrum Noir pen.
I then traced around the outer edge with the EB3 pen.
It looked like an episode of CSI, lol!
Anyway, the next step for this was to give the edges some shading so I used a succession of pens. GB6, TN6, TN7, an all over squiggle of the blender and then again over all of that with the GB7.
To add the facial features and buttons I used a black indian ink pen and circular template to mark out where they would be and then added gems.
When all was done, they looked amazing all in a row – like they were fresh from the oven – NOM!
Mind you, some of them were a little naughty, such as the one that gave the other a pinch on the bottom…
Or the one that got himself a little overdone!
Most of them were good (and will be on the “nice” list this year) and will happily sit atop my Balsam Hill Christmas Tree.
So you might be asking yourself why I didn’t just cut these from gingery coloured cardstock – well, the long and short of it was that I didn’t have any – I know, unbelievable, right?!
Anyway, that’s another batch of decs done. How are you getting on?
Time is flying by this month, it’ll be the big day before we know it!
Thanks for stopping by again today and I hope to see you again tomorrow.
