Sugar Creek Hollow Color Challenge

It's Saturday morning and again it's time to highlight Sugar Creek Hollow digital stamps.  This week we have a color challenge for you using Black, Riding Hood Red and Vanilla.  So here's my card using this color combination.

I really like this image from Sugar Creek Hollow digital stamps called "Sing and Make Music".  I used to play violin as a kid and so it probably grabs me for that reason.  But it also has a great saying and an interesting floral frame around it that is unusual.  You can find it here at the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe.  I colored it using Riding Hood Red ink and an aqua painter.  I also used antique linen distress ink from Tim Holtz to age the images.  And what's hard to see here is the glitter gel pen that was used on floral frame of the image to add a little zing! 

I created my own background paper too for this card using another digi from Sugar Creek Hollow - just to show you how versatile digi images can be. 
I took the "Autumn Swirl Filigree" digi pictured at the left, and duplicated it so I was starting with two identifical images in Microsoft Word.  I rotated them so they were more vertically oriented, flipped one so they appeared as mirror images of each other.  From there I just copied and pasted the duo all over the page so when it printed it would have a damask look.  There's just no end to the patterns you can create with just one digi - why don't you visit Sugar Creek Hollow today and get this one!  And on the way visit my design team colleagues (links are on my left sidebar) to view their stunning works today.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sharon, you have such a creative mind...I would love to come sit by you for a day or two...or three..haha! My daughter, Rachael designed this stamp that you have made the background paper with. When I showed her what you did she jumped up and down and was so excited. This is truly a gorgoues card and piece of art work.

Sharon,

I have been trying to rotate this image in Microsoft Word, and can't seem to get it correctly. How on earth did you do it? I have an email link on my blog if you want to contact me that way. Thanks for any help you can give me. Lisa
