Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and Blog Hop!

Saturdays are always sensational at Sugar Creek Hollow!  That's when the design team creates new cards to share with you for inspiration.  This week the design team was challenged to create an image using a technique called  "Faux Barn Board" which was  featured on Splitcoast Stampers.  Well, I did not have any white acrylic paint so I used my Cuttlebug folder that embosses a wood grain look.
Christmas Cardinal

I thought the Christmas Cardinal image would be ideal against my barn board.  I used Webster's Pages for my die cut and K and Company DP.  My CS is from Bazzill.  

My cardinal is colored with Copic markers and I sponged distressed ink around the image.  Dew drops, satin ribbon and lace complete my embellishments.

Please join us for this week's challenge!  We would love for you to play along,  just make your creation using the faux barn board technique and link it up with Mr. Linky HERE

I've listed our DT members below and hope you will visit, we love to hear from you!  

Thanks for visiting and have a sensational Saturday!

Sugar Creek Hollow Nugget:  

Hosea 2:18 NIV

In that day I will make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field and the birds of the air and the creatures that move along the ground. Bow and sword and battle I will abolish from the land, so that all may lie down in safety.
