A Sweet Square

Today I want to share a square card made for The Designer Challenge over at My Creative Time.
I chose a stamp inspired by a recent day trip with my family. We have had so much rainfall lately that the TVA decided that they needed to release water out of Fontana Dam. We have been camping there for years and I have never seen the water released through the spillway. This picture was taken from the top of the dam. I am truly blessed to live in such a beautiful place.

This picture is at the bottom of the dam with my guys :)

How did this inspire my card? During our drive from the top of the dam to the bottom we stopped at the local ice cream shop and enjoyed a very sweet treat. I was also badly beaten in a game of checkers by the little guy but I try not to dwell on that.

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and backed it with green vellum paper punched with Martha Stewart's Loops. The designer paper is DCWV Sweet Shoppe stack. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Catch a Wave

This evening I was in the mood to play with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I am still learning how to blend and get the right color combination. I used a digital stamp from Pollycraft called "Summer Things - Cool Cat." I am entering this in ABC35 "Anything Goes" Challenge.
The paper is from My Mind's Eye "Fine& Dandy" 6x6 pack. I think I'll go color some more. 
Have a blessed day!
