SSD02 - 'Tis the season for gingerbread men!

It's time for another Skipping Stone Sketch Tuesday and this week is a long and semi skinny card - I guess it ate too many gingerbread men *snort* ;) In case you were wondering this card is actually a 4x6" card which is kind of an unusual measurement but I find that I am still able to fit everything that I want to add on this size of card.

I took the opportunity to use this adorable gingerbread man to make a Christmas Card rather than pair it up with the sassy sentiments that it comes with to show the versatility of this set....and because I ran out of room! lol

I water coloured this gingerbread man using my tombow markers and aqua painter and then I touched up the icing bits with a white gel pen. As an after thought I added some stardust stickles and of course needed the rest of the card to be just as festive...a bottle of stardust stickles later and some awfully glittery fingertips...voila! There you have it - one very shiny card! Put on your sunglasses to view this one ladies!
