A Sweet Gingerbread Girl at the Beach!

For the Color Challenge on Split Coast this week Hostess Kelly (Schirmcat) asked us to use Kraft, So Saffron and Night of Navy.

I just love the gingerbread stamp sets by Waltzingmouse Stamps and I hate to wait to use them just at Christmas time - so I'm always trying to think of ways to use them for other times during the year.

Today we have the little gingerbread girl at the beach working on her tan! The cute outfit Claire designed for the Gingerbread girl looks like a little bathing suit to me and I made a beach blanket out of her bed blanket stamp! I pounced Chai Tea Die ink by Papertrey over the little girl as well as the sun to soften the bright yellow. The sun is made with one of the gingerbread faces in the set.

Everything is popped up on dimensionals. The wavy beach stamp in the background is from CTMH and you can just barely see the cloudy sky made with my hand made cloud template.

Well - now I'm off to eat supper - thanks so much for coming by today - let me know what you think of my Summer Gingerbread Girl !!!???
