Sugar Creek Hollow.........
We had a fabbie day in York yesterday, we got to see lots of trains and had quite a few train rides including one sitting in the carriage of the Hogwarts express as well as that my son and Ethan actually got to stand on the train in the drivers part of the Hogwarts express so that was a lovely experience.......mind you these trains are enormous when you stand next to them on the ground.....I'll post some pics later.
On to todays challenge at SUGAR CREEK HOLLOW........the theme this week is to make your own papers, so don't be sneeking on any Prima or Graphic 45 etc and also just to remind you that we want to see Vintage, shabby chic or Primative style cards....sorry no cuties
Before I get to my card we would like to welcome our guest designer,Kimberly Morrow...... who won last months guest spot, so well done Kimberly, check out her lovely blog http://whimsicalpaperelegance.blogspot.ca/
For my card I have used all B Line Stamps, the houndstooth back ground I stamped onto cream card using Rich Cocoa memento ink, the ribbon band I used black and then coloured in the lighter part of the gingham using promarker Light fawn. The advertisement image I stamped onto cream and then coloured again with promarkers as well as adding ink to the edges,after that I embossed part of the advert in clear just to add some interest to the image. The key part I embossed and then highlighted the keys with copper and gold embossing and added a chipboard key in the bottom corner, I then fininshed off with some buttons.
