Sugar Creek Hollow - Color Challenge

Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow...

This week we have a color challenge for you. We want you to make vintage, shabby chic or primitive cards featuring CREAM, BLUE & BROWN.

One random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the
running for a Guest Designer spot.

Our Design Team has created wonderful cards with this color scheme to inspire you. Once you are at our challenge page, if you want the details on their cards, just click on their name and you will be taken directly to their blog.

For this challenge, I pulled this rather old stamp out from my collection because it's one of my all time favorites for coloring and I was in a coloring mood. It's "Three Home Nest" from Stampendous, circa 1998 and it still makes for a beautiful card that welcomes Spring. It's colored with both Copics and Prisma pencils which you can always do.. as long as the pencils come after the Copics. Pencils really help to create shadow areas, at least I think so.

So please come and join us at Sugar Creek Hollow this week.. it's a fun challenge that I think you will enjoy. Thanks so much for stopping by and saying hello. Have a fantastic day!
