Northern Lights Mountain Adventure with a llama


Fed up of llamas yet? I will NEVER be fed up of llamas, and will take every opportunity to use this stamp until it retires.

Here I’ve given him a snowy backdrop again, the results of last Crafty Friday where we experimented with the Northern Lights technique. It’s a simple sponging technique and this one was originally rejected as “too stripey”, so I tried to salvage it with more ink before rejecting it again as too dark. However, once it had dried, it was a little lighter and I wondered if I could claw something back from the wreckage.

So I splashed some clean water over the top, left them for a few seconds, then dabbed them dry with a tissue. It gave me this lovely snowy effect, just right for a llama, who is positioned very carefully to cover the damaged cardstock, where I’d used the adhesive remover too early. Yes, it was one of those mornings...
