Today I thought i would share with you all how to make really cute ginger bread men, all you need is Bear die #7, some cream card, a white gel pen, a black fine pen, petal pink liquid pearls, fruit punch stickles, and a white and brown pencil for high lighting.
Step one. Cut all the pieces from bear die #7 like i have in cream card, i have used the biggest nose for this ginger bread man, and i used the nose shape from the scruffy bear die for the eyes, ink and shade as normal, but make sure the bottom of the feet are a little darker so its looks like bottom on the foot.
Step 2 Add pink chalk to the cheeks and to the top of the belly, add the nose and the eyes and use the petal pink liquid pears for the mouth. Draw on the wavy lines for the icing with a white gel pen, and the eyes lashes with the black fine pen.
Step 3 stick all the bits together and you should have something that looks like mine, at this point you can add some high lights with your brown pencil and white pencil, just copy how i have done mine, but if you want to have a go on your own just add the brown pencil where there is a dent or groove in the card and add the white pencil to high light your lines and the any other area you wish.
Step 4. last step use the smallest eyes from bear die #7 for the candy buttons i just added fruit punch stickles to add that bit of bling...... and hey presto you should have something that looks like mine.... hope you have fun with this one.... hugs trak xxx
