Sunset on the Lake

Last summer, when we were in VT, there was the most beautiful sunset over the lake.  The sky was streaked with pink and blue.  Oh, what an awesome sight!   My brother tried to get pictures of it but couldn't quite capture it.  I tried to capture it here, but didn't quite capture it either.  Only God can make a sunset like that!

The colors for this week's Color Challenge on SCS are Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight.  Dessert was to do something summery.  These colors made me remember that sunset.  I think I mastered the colors but the coloring is another story entirely!  I used a combination of sponging and blender pen.  Do you think that's splending?

The SUO Challenge this time is to do a card for our father for Father's Day.  I hope Dad will enjoy this sunset even on a cloudy day.

And this card is to honor last week's Queen for the Day, Pam, aka Bailmac.  She did this card for her father.   I love the way she tied the string.  In fact, I love everything about her card.  I used different colors and stamps, but kept the layout pretty much the same.  I know this is late for Pam but I hope she has enjoyed her reign.  I sure enjoyed browsing her gallery and CASEing her card.

You are such a talented stamper Bonnie and now you are coming up with names for the techniques too! Splending describes it perfectly and it works beautifully - your card looks like an impressionist painting!
