Vacation at the Lake, designer challenge card

Welcome back, today’s card is for the Karen Burniston design team challenge. This months challenge was “Vacation” and she asked us where we would like to go. I scratched my head a bit with this one because I don’t typically go on “Vacation”, not that I don’t go anywhere it’s just that I don’t typically consider it a vacation. Thinking back on the years of the vacations we went on while raising our children we typically went to my home town. But is “home” a vacation? And the more I thought about it, I decided yes, it was. I was raised in northern Ontario on the north shore of Lake Huron, but I’ve spent my adult life in the Prairies, so when ever I have taken my family there it has always been a fun time, hanging out on one of the many beaches or relaxing at my parents feeding the chipmunks, squirrels and a sneaky racoon peanuts and what ever other snacks that were handy. Once the seed was planted in my heard there was no turning back, and this is what I came up with.

I am not typically a colour artist, but I have been just drooling over some of the amazing cards by Jennifer Webster and thought I’d pull my markers out to add a little dimension to the some of the elements on this card. I don’t give directions as I am just winging it, lol. I used some older Stampin Up alcohols markers and some Chameleon Alcohol Markers
