Coloring Unusual Animals

Hi there! Today’s card is one of my favorites so far. How ’bout that llama? Isn’t he an adorable stamp? This is a Gerda Steiner Designs stamp set called Llama Tell You. I’ve only recently discovered this company and her images have such attitude. They’re really fun to work with!

I colored this scene with Copics and when it comes to coloring unusual animals that you don’t see everyday, Google is your friend. I studied a whole bunch of images online until I found a llama with the colors I wanted for this scene. Did you know llamas come in a ton of different colors and “styles”?

I used a few Die-namics dies from My Favorite Things on this card. I die-cut the llama scene first using the Stitched Circle Stax Die-namics. I always die-cut my blank cardstock first and then stamp and color. Then, I die-cut a Single Stitch Circle Frame from kraft cardstock to accent my scene.

The sentiment is stamped on a die-cut My Favorite Things patterned paper using the Sentiment Label Strip Die-namics die. This die has 2 rounded edges, but it was the perfect shape to go under my circular frame, so I just tucked the other rounded edge under my scene.

I stamped and colored a second prickly pear cactus and used a little dimensional adhesive to give the card a little extra something on the one side.

I hope you enjoyed my little llama and thanks for stopping by!
