Sensational Saturday with Sugar Creek Hollow



Welcome to another Sensational Saturday with Sugar Creek Hollow!
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
For this weeks challenge we were to use the Faux Barn Board technique. I did try it, but did not like the final result so I did it over again and stopped after the first step ;o) I kind of liked this dark wood-look. When it was dry I also added some small strokes of gold, but it does not show well in the photo.
I used the Vintage Postage Stamp again. Really love that image. So does a few of my DT sisters.
Go check out the DT blog and see all the amazing creations they have made using wood.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lovely card this week. The lace, and the flowers are the perfect touch of elegance with the rustic-ness of the wood technique. Great color hughes that you have chosen for this week.

I love the way your barn wood turned out, it looks so very real, the color is so rich and looks like it has texture depth as it should!! You did a phenomenal job on this, your coloring, that special touch you have in pulling everything together to make a spectacular piece! It turned out gorgeous! Love it!!
