Let me tell you, I love this image Cheryl drew for our resident llama keeper Dawn. I love it to bits, had to have it in fact. Well Sassy Jeni was right when she chose the sentiment "Oh Spit" for her llama card. That was real cute but when I was coloring my llama I was saying another word that rhymes with Oh Spit. This dern llama was HARD to color. I worked and worked, put it away and brought it out several times working on it. Then I picked up a regular pencil and started coloring lines all over it. Finally I was satisfied enough to make it into a card.
I found this perfect sentiment over at TLC. Paulette has the very best sentiments and many are free too. It is my first go-to place when I am searching for a sentiment. Check it out here.
I wound some black tulle around My Mind's Eye DP, tied and fluffed a little bow, popped a metal button from my stash on it. I sponged some clouds in the sky and used some "Flower Soft" for grass. I debated whether or not to extend the grass to the cut out area, but decided it was more interesting this way. The llama comes with or without the ribbon, but I wanted to use it for #1 Pal. Dawn's llama is colored with various shades of the E Family of Copics markers. The blue ribbon is Copics and the lettering done with a Sakura Black Gel Pin. I popped his eyes a bit with Paper Glaze.
I am entering this card in Sassy Cheryl's Outside of the Box Challenge this week. Why don't you pop on over to her store and pick up this llama for yourself and show me some different ideas on coloring him. Enter it in the challenge and you could win a Sassy Cheryl digi for your efforts, and believe me, she has some beauties too.
