Samantha shares a unique travel memory with her Travel Destination/Favorite Place inspiration today! We will let her tell you about it!
For my card, I kept the current challenge theme going by making it a tribute to Loch Ness! My family and I were so blessed to be able to go to Scotland with my grandpa to see where he was born, and to see some family we had there, for 2 weeks! We took a long trip up to the Isle of Skye (swoon, so gorgeous!) and then on the way back, we stopped at Loch Ness! I had been head over heals with Nessie since I was a girl listening to stories from my grandpa, and couldn’t imagine not stopping by to look for her!
I used the Stitched Mountain Borders to create the backdrop, and then used the Stitched Hillside Borders to die cut the lake shape under the mountains! I used Distress Inks to ink blend everything! The mountains were done with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn, and the lake was done with Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Salvaged Patina!
I also used the Starry Sky Stencil to ink blend some stars in the sky, then I used it again to add some glittery stars!
I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto some Black Licorice cardstock and then fussy cut it out! I also colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and fussy cut them out! Nessie is from Lovable Legends (of course!) and the trees are from Yeti, Set, Go!
Thank you so much for sharing this brilliant inspiration today, Samantha! I love your fun travel story!
