Adventures in Alaska

As you know, I live in Alaska, and my family is getting ready to head out on a weeklong adventure.  Every July we head down to “fish camp”.  We spend a week camping, fishing and dipnetting for sockeye salmon along the Kenai River.  The kids come and go, everyone gets to fish, relax, and enjoy family time.  I look forward to this trip every year.  So . .  as we are preparing for this trip, I am only able to share one alternative from this amazing kit, but come back in two weeks for more alternatives.  

Holiday Adventures

Over the past couple weeks, I’ve been in “holiday” mode.  As a result, this holiday adventure card was created; however, I’ll add some “summertime” cards when I return from our fishing adventures. 

I used the lantern from the kit and added some layers of snow using the tearing technique. I created the background using blending brushes with a few inks: Night of Navy and Bermuda Bay.  

Finishing Touches

After adding the latern with dimensionals and Wink of Stella to make the light glow, I embellished this card with a heat embossed sentiment, basic rhinestone jewels, and Real Red ribbon.  It looks absolutley stunning!!  A perfect holiday card!!
