Whoop whoop! Dies to Die For has it’s very own monthly challenge blog, Die-ing for a Challenge, and it kicks off today with a nice and easy “Anything Goes” challenge (although you do need to use at least one die cut. The challenge is sponsored by Dies to Die For and the prize is a fab £25 voucher to spend in the store. Can’t be bad hey?
I have used one of the gorgeous new Sarah Kay stamps on my card today. She is called Katie, such a little doll and is in stock now at D2D4. I have used two dies on my card – Marianne Design Creatables - Designer Doily – LR0130 and also a Memory Box Pearl Lace border die.
The stunning papers are Marianne Design Eline's Huis Paper Bloc A4 - Pale Pastels, I have resisted using these for so long, they are just stunning and it took me ages to pluck up the courage to cut in to them lol.
Katie has been coloured with Copics and Prismacolor pencils
Skin: E11, 00, 000, 0000, R30
Hair: E25, 23, 50 and dark umber pencil
Beige: E43, 42, 41, 40 and warm grey 20% pencil
Pink: R83, 81, RV000, 0000 and Tuscan red pencil
Flowers: R89, 85, G46, 43
I have used some yummy Dusty Attic chipboards (that will be in stock at Dies to Die For any day now) – the feathers I have used as leaves (after coating them with Picket Fence Distress Paint) and edging with Stickles. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The large rose is new (will add the link when I get it), 25mm hybrid tea roses, 15mm roses, 20mm rose, sweetheart blossoms as is the seam binding.
I have also used a small Dusty Attic padlock and key and given them the same treatment as before. The gorgeous Grand Lace Trim has been cut in half (love being thrifty lol).
And the inside has been decorated to compliment the front.
That’s it from me today, hope you all have a fab weekend (I will be working on two magazine commissions so busy, busy for me all weekend)
