Mix It Up Monday: Birthday Fiesta llamas


It’s Mix It Up Monday again and time for another project made with a colour combination from my latest set of In Color charts.

I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it (I do really) but I really LOVE llamas. They really are great for very many reasons... the main one being: they are GREAT. 

Anyway, a friend of my husband’s has just bought a house with land and plans to fill it with animals. She’s started with a couple of pigs but, although I have a pig stamp in Barnyard Babies, I wanted to look to the future, as she also hopes to get some alpacas. They’re smaller than llamas and slightly different in shape, but this is the best I could do for their new home card. Really, I just wanted an excuse to use the llama stamp again. It ’s such a fun stamp, I don’t know why everybody doesn’t buy it! 

This is my favourite colour combination for this set at the moment. I thought I’d ignore the harsh oranges and pinks of the catalogue samples (although only until next Monday, hint, hint), and tone things down with some Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso, for a more Peruvian look. I love it!
