Baby, Baby, Baby

I have been studying some different cookiers and their techniques for a while and really liked the idea of painting on cookies.  I had some cookie ideas in mind that required a bit more detail than icing would allow me so I decided to try painting the details.  I love to paint so this was right up my alley!  Before we start, I wanted to clarify that I traced these images onto dry, iced cookies.  I am not privileged enough to have a Kopykake projector.  Yet.
I found these images on a rubber stamp site. I copied and resized them to fit my new homemade cookie cutter!  Yes, I got their permission to use the images and yes, I did color them Sunday morning in church. :)

To paint, you just use 1 part food color and 1 part water.  EASY!
I was tempted just to paint them totally but I didn't.
Notice my shiny new stainless table!  I love it!  And I love these babies before they even have faces!
These were so fun!  I didn't mean to put this doggy in.  The other one I did was better but you get the idea!
For the letter cookies, I found a font, printed D's and then traced them with icing on wax paper.  When they dried, I added them to the blue circles with icing.  I did the same with the domino.
The domino is significant.  The baby, Dominic, is affectionately nicknamed Domino.
