The Gingerbread House

Hi everyone!! The card I am sharing with you today is a card I entered in the Whipper Snapper contest. Have you seen the new site? WOW!!!! And they are now offering 3 differnt options, Wood Mounted, Cling Cushion and unmounted, yea!!!! So excited, I really like to purchase the unmounted, saves a ton of room and money!!!!
I used this cute image, Gingerbread House. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it!! And I had so much fun creating this card also!! I used a lot of fun "stuff"!! I stared out by stamping the house with Versafine Onyx Black in on Very Vanilla cardstock. I colored the image using my Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol and blending stumps. Then the fun really began!! LOL!!! I applied Liquid Glass to the lollipops on the side of the house. I used different colored Stickles for the gumdrops on the roof, along the sidewalk and the sides of the lollipops. For thesidewalk I used Cinnamon Stickles. I used Chrismas Red and Star Dust on the door, the piece of candy above the door, the "chimney" and the side of the house. On the ground and roof I applied Liquid Applique, poured some glitter over and heat it to give the puffy look. I then sponged around the image using Palette Dark Chocolate ink and a sponge. The main image is applied to a layer of Dark Chocolate. Behind is a layer of dp from Basic Grey, Dark Chocolate and the base card is Very Vanilla. I entered 3 in the contest, this was my first and my favorite!!!
