Gingerbread Boy Tag

I've been feeding my tag addiction with

I've done the recipe on the computer and printed it on 
some ancient parchment paper from my stash.

I cut it to fit a cardstock tag, adhered it and did 
some distressing and stamped some splotches
for good measure.  (That's the way my recipe book looks.)

The Gingerbread Boy was stamped on
Baked Brown Sugar cardstock
and embossed.

I colored the buttons with a Copic Marker
and covered with Crystal Effects.

I dotted the eyes with a brown Copic Marker
and his bow tie with green.

The little strip at the bottom is dry embossed with hearts.
I couldn't get them to show up in the photo.

Some burlap twine finishes the tag off.

I'm going to join in at 

Thanks for the visit.

I don't know. With those lashes, gingerbread boy might be gingerbread girl. Or maybe gingerbread transgender. Still lovely though.
