Gingerbread Boy Banner

Happy Friday High Hopes Fans!

While the team has been having a blast playing with the stamps from the new release I thought it would be fun to play with an older image!

I colored the image with Prisma pencils and blended with gamsol and blending stumps.
(Cardinal Red, Grass Green, Spring Green, Pink, Sienna, sky blue, silver)

The ribbon is May Arts.
The paper is We R Memory Keepers.
The sentiment that I stamped on the banner is Dot Warm Winter Wishes.

I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration.
We appreciate you stopping by!
