Savvy 7 January 2017 Blog Hop - Snowflakes

If you have arrived here from Jeanne's blog, you are in the right place.  I am last in this blog hop of some very talented, lovely ladies.  I am so honored to be a part of this team.  Here is my card:

The snowflake background is from a Unity Stamp Co. Kit of the Month (November 2011).  The sentiment is from another Unity Stamp Co. Kit of the Month (December 2010).  Large pattern paper piece is Webster's Pages.  Strip of pattern paper is American Crafts.  I added a silver tree for some shine.

Can You Case It #144, A Color Challenge

Welcome back to my blog!  Happy New Year everyone!  I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable New Year's Eve.  For the next two weeks, Can You Case It is having a color challenge.  This palette was selected by our very own Rose.  Woot!  Woot!  Love these colors together.  Check them out right here:

And here is what I created with these colors:

My canvas was a giant manila tag, #12 size.  It measures 5 1/8" x 10 1/2".  I filled in the stencil (Dina Wakley) with crackled texture paste and let dry.  I then outlined and filled in the silhouette with metallic accent paints (Prima).  I tore pieces of pattern paper and applied them to the tag with Mod Podge.  Once this was completely dry I stamped the tag and stamped the silhouette with Unity Stamps.  I learned this technique from a fellow crafter, Diane Deszo.  The sentiment stamp is from Riley & Company.

I am going to add this tag to my art journal.  I hope you have been inspired.  Come play with us...I promise you'll have a great time.

Until next time,
