Congrats {Scrapy Land #30}



Today is the start of a new Scrapy Land Challenge and the theme is Monochromatic, plus use any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  The winner, which is chosen by the designers, will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at the Scrapy Land store.

For today's card, I chose shades of purple and used the following dies:
Sue Wilson Designs: New York Collection - Background
Sue Wilson Designs: Finishing Touches - Cornflower
Frantic Stamper: Congrats

To start off, I created my background using a piece of YUPO synthetic paper and sprayed Purple Metallic Memories Mist on top.  I blotted off some of the excess ink with a paper towel, giving the appearance of texture.  YUPO paper takes a while to dry, so I let it dry overnight before completing the card.


The next layer was die cut using the Sue Wilson Designs background die and then heat set with Wisteria embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The Cornflowers are made up of multiple layers of various sizes of die cut copy paper (sprayed with more Memories Mist) stacked on top of each other.  Diamond Dust Twinklets glitter was added to the center of each flower as well.  The Delicate Fronds were die cut from both dark and light shades of purple.

The sentiment was added to the center and the outer edge of the card base was also heat embossed with Wisteria embossing powder.

Be sure to visit the rest of the team to see what they have created for this fun challenge and don't forget to upload your own monochromatic project by Nov 30th.
