Dies to Die For - Henri

Hey Everyone

How was your weekend?

There is a new challenge over at Die-ing for a Challenge where the theme this week is "Spots and Stripes" - easy peasy huh!

Don't forget you can bag yourself a whooping £25 voucher to spend in the fabulous Dies to Die For store.  But, as always you have to be in it to win it so dig out your dies, Big Shots, Sizzix, Wizards, Grand Caliburs and starting crafting.

Now there are a few rules to observe which are:


* All entries must have at least one Dies to Die for product on
* You can combine our challenge with NO MORE THAN 3 OTHER CHALLENGES
* You must link back to the Dies to Die for Blog
NO back linking, new projects/cards only please
* Only 2 Entries per person please
* Entries which fail to observe the above will be removed and will not be eligible for the prize

Here is the card I have made for the challenge:

I say, isn't he just dashing!  Don't miss out - grab Henri while you can as he is reduced at the moment in the Dies to Die For store.  I have classed the spots as the little dots on the paper and the pearls at the top of the card ;0)

The recipe for the card is:

Papers:  Glitz - Vintage Blue
Stamp:  Kraftin' Kimme - Henri
Corner Die:  Die-Namics - Photo Corners

The image has been coloured with Copics as follows:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000
Hair:  C5 C4 C3 C2 C1 C0
Hat:  T7 T6 T5 T4 T3 / E42 E41 E40
Waistcoat and Trousers:  T7 T6 T5 T4 T3
Shirt:  E42 E41 E40
Tie:  R29
Shoes:  N7 N5 N3
Cane:  E25 E23
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

I have outlined the image and all the papers and card with Weathered Wood Distress Ink
The sentiment was created on my PC

And that's it.  I hope you will come and join in the fun with us.

Have a great week.
