A wonderful December to everyone and welcome to another Scrapy Land Challenge #31. Scrapy Land challenge is Bi-Weekly and ends Dec 15, 2015. Only requirement is that you use any die that Scrapy Land sells in the store, and it would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project. The winner will get a $15.00 gift card from Scrapy Land. The theme for this challenge is “Anything Goes”. The sentiment on the front is from Stampin up set Heard from the Heart.
This is how I made my card. I really like using Brilliance inks because they have a softness about them and they do blend together nicely.
These are the Brilliance inks I used Coral, Sky Blue, Yellow, Orange, Mediterranean Blue, Graphite Black and Beige.

Aleene’s True Snow you can pick that up at Michael’s stores or Joann’s Stores. The Twinkle's Diamond Dust to add more sparkle. Cut out several of the dies with sparkle paper.
The size of my card is 5” by 7”. So my work surface on the card stock I made 5 1/2” by 8 1/2”, you always want to make that area bigger them your card area. What I did here is made a line. I do not want to go below the line with my ink.
Always start with your lightest color. So I add the yellow first. Whatever way you decide the raises to go make sure you ALWAYS go in the same direction throughout your card.
Now add more of the other colors in different areas but going in the same ANGLE. I could of done my raises on more of an ANGLE, but was not thinking. How deep your colors are will decide how bright the raises are. Remember you do not want to make mud! Your fingers can get pretty messy when you do a lot of sponging.
I cut the sides off and you can work some of the lighter colors, that will help blend the colors nicely. You might want to add some of the dark (Black) to the edges but be careful not to do too much as you will loose more of the pretty colors and you want to work from off the paper (outer edge) in word on that Angle.
Now I have removed the scrap paper. Used to make some stars was Gelly Roll white star.
Adding the snow on the bottom
and then the Town Scene with the other embellishments the card starts to take shape.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and it is something you can do. If you need any help let me know or have any questions please ask. The scenes are unlimited and they make wonderful masculine cards. Thanks for stopping by.
