Sweet Treats!

Doesn't this little fella look good enough to eat? I made this wee gift bag for The Cats Pajama's Tuesday Challenge.

This pretty Gingerbread Picture was the inspiration for this weeks Challenge. Focusing on the Gingerbread and the icing, I came up with this little creation. I have SO many die cuts and rarely pull them out of their cases. I also LOVE liquid Applique and saw this as a perfect opportunity to use a dab or two on my project.

I sponged the Gingerbread die cut with Creamy Caramel Ink to give it some dimension and then I chalked in the rosy cheeks with some Pink Passion Stamping pastel, adding a dot of white gel pen for highlights.

Using the Gingerbread House and candy image and sentiment from Candyland Christmas, I made some embellishments for the little guy! I coloured the house with Copics and added a little Chunky Glitter to the roof for effect! I iced the little man with liquid applique, as well as added more to the chocolate fondant border! A Sweet Treat indeed!

Hop on over to the Cat's Pajama's site to play the Tuesday Challenges, they're a blast!
