Power Poppy October Release Preview ~ Day 3

Do you like gingerbread?  Have you ever made a gingerbread house?  I honestly never have.  Is that sad?  But I can now say I've colored one.

Today I have a Power Poppy card to share with you.  This darling gingerbread house is from the new set, appropriately called, Frosted Gingerbread.  I colored the house with Copics and added the little white dots, to the candied roof, with a white Sharpie pen.  For the snow, I covered the areas with Puffy White paint by Tulip and added glitter to it before letting it dry for 4 hours.  Then I took my heat tool to it and watched it puff up.  It looks and feels like frosting!  Super fun!

I took the sentiment "Hope, Peace, Cookies" cut it up, and added it to the circle's edge.  I also added some acrylic paint splatters and embossed background.  If you click on the image below, you can get an even closer look at the "frosting".

That sums up my project for today.  Here's a list of the Bloom Brigade participants:

Copics:  R: 39, 37, 35
              E: 59, 39, 37, 35, 33, 31
           BG: 15, 13, 11
              T:   3, 1, 0

Thanks for dropping by, and for the comments.  Your input is much appreciated!

The frosting is fabulous--yum! I love the white dots on the roof shingles, too. You did this up so cute, Tosh! I have never decorated a gingerbread house until now. This was quicker and less messy!
