Sugar Creek Hollow - Use a Winter Digi

Happy Saturday!

This week at Sugar Creek Hollow, we were challenged to use a stamp that has not yet been used, which is really difficult as the stamps are so adorable, they have all been used. Then, this week we were surprised with a new stamp, and you are going to love it! 

Here is my card...


Paper: Mirabella (The Paper Stuio), Copper Cardstock
Ink: Ink Jet Printer, Distress Ink
 

I changed the color of the image to sepia. I then added just a bit of color to the eyes, hair and lips using distress ink. I also added color to the edge of the image using distress ink. 



This beautiful scroll comes as part of the Baby Jesus set which is available at Sugar Creek Hollow


I used a Tim Holtz mask to mask a crown on the music and then used distress ink to color the remainder of the paper.

Go visit the rest of the design team's blogs. They have created some gorgeous cards using this set!

Thank you for stopping by today.

Fabulous card. I love the added colour because it just emphasizes the image but keeps it so soft. Your flourishes, the crown on the paper and the flower are such wonderful additions.
Hugs!
