INSPIRED BY ALASKA BLOG HOP


Today I have an amazing opportunity for you. I am taking part in the Aim for Alaska Blog Hop and I would like you to join me.

What is Aim for Alaska, you may ask? Aim for Alaska is an amazing training and support group for Stampin' Up! demonstrators, run by Kylie Bertucci. One of the amazing opportunities that Stampin' Up! provide their demonstrators is the ability to earn a trip each year. The current trip we are striving for is a trip to Alaska!

When I think about Alaska I think of the crystal blue waters, the amazing green trees and the pure white sparkly snow. With this in mind, this is what I made.




You may wonder how I made my background. The answer is emboss resist. I used the splatter stamp from Touches of Texture and clear embossed. I then used sponge daubers to add colour.



These are the colours I used in the background.



I then stamped the ship from the Traveler stamp set in smoky slate on some vellum and cut it out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The image reminds me of a cruise ship.
I then added a few metallic enamel shapes to finish it off.




Thanks for joining me. I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop.
