Sugar Creek Hollow - Emboss It!

Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow. This week we have a great challenge theme and it's EMBOSSING. You can create your vintage, shabby chic or primitive card with dry or heat embossing.

Join us in saying hello to Digi Doodle Shop, a lovely new sponsor who will be providing one random winner with a $10 gift certificate to their store. The random winner will also receive a winner's badge from Sugar Creek Hollow to display on her blog. In addition, the Design Team will select one project as 'Card of the Week' and the creator will receive a badge to display and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

The Design Team has used a number of the fabulous images from Digi Doodle Shop and have created some wonderful inspiration for you. So be sure to check them out at our challenge site.

Here's my contribution to our challenge this week using the antique lamp digi from Digi Doodle.

'Remember lamps like this? Chances are that your great aunt or grandmother had one sitting on a maple side table. My recollection is a soft, pearl-like peach color and that's what I tried to recreate. I was super happy about how the brass base turned out with Copics.

I'm also entering this in these challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by, friends. Enjoy your weekend. Hopefully it's a lot warmer in your part of the world!

Hi Peggy, you should be very happy with your card, I love the way you framed it with your embossed bg! The coloring is gorgeous and your brass looks very real. My lace piece is the new this year vintage lace punch by Stampin' Up, I love real lace, but had this in my scrap piece box and it looked as if it wanted to be used, lol. Hope you are having a great weekend

This turned out great Peggy. I love the frame you created. It is perfect for this image. You are doing lots of dt stuff these days. Glad to see you stamping. Hugs.

Ms. Peggy, this turned out beautiful. The base turned out as close to brass as copics can get it I think. Love it!!!
