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,


  1. Beautiful card Dawn! I love the texture on the silhouette and the mosaic feel of the card.

  2. Very cool tag, Dawn! I love the crackled texture you created and that sentiment is awesome!

  3. Dawn, what a beautiful card. I love the sentiment and the whole card concept.
