Welcome to another edition of my Perfect Combos series for Heffy Doodle.
With the school year starting and having 2 kids in elementary school, I am in constant need of cute encouragement cards. For today’s card I used a couple of stamps, dies and a fun stencil from the new release. Let me lead you through the process.
First I have stamped the images from the Llamazing llamas stamp set on alcohol friendly cardstock and used Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers to colour them. The colours I used: LLamas: BG5, BG2, BG1, FS8, FS7, FS4 cactus: LG4, LG3, LG2, LG1. I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out.
To set the scene I first die cut a Stitched Rounded Metric Rectangle from black and one white cardstock and blended it with Pumice Stone Distress Oxide ink on the bottom. I used BG markers to add some dot details, I love texture! I layered the black rectangle under it so it looks like shadow an arranged my scene. I popped up the llamas with 3D foam squares for a dimensional look.
For the background I first inkblended Salvaged Patina, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks with a light hand and then used the new Fiesta Time stencil with the same colours just this time I added more ink. Before removing the stencil I lightly spritzed it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz which makes the pattern sparkly. This tone-on-tone look is great on its own, but I went further and added some black and white acrylic paint splatters.
For the sentiment I chose a die cut word: I cut the Awesome from blue cardstock once and adhered it to the top of the scene. I stamped another sentiment under it in black from the Llamazing llamas stamp set.
As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on the eyes and covered the awesome with glossy accents. It gives a shiny dimensional look, so gorgeous!
