I LOVE gingerbread...cookies, bread, muffins...doesn't matter. So making a gingerbread man cookie would be perfect for the 12 tags of 2013. If you haven't tried Clearly For Art by Studio 490, you're missing out! Add Tim's Frosted Film and your art takes on a new look. Using both, my cookie takes on dimension and a slight shimmer as if sprinkled with sugar.
I had a dickens of a time getting the 'icing' to stick to the colored Frosted Film. Multi-medium finally took hold. Then I covered the paper icing with Enamel Accents for dimension and shine. The brads were colored with white distress paint and glossy accents. The metal sticker strip made me think of the cookie sheet he would be baked on. The Cropadile was used to create the bite out of his head. Yummy!
Here's what I used to create my #8 tag..the last of 2013.
