New catalogue and Sale-a-Bration, too!

I LOVE this image. I absolutely love goats and, after an all-too-short “llama experience” in 2013, I adore llamas, too. So when I saw this brand new stamp set in the Spring/Summer catalogue, I knew I’d have to knuckle down and learn to use those Blendabilities. 

It’s actually not at all difficult and I’m now a dab hand at colouring these creatures. Sometimes the birds are yellow, sometimes the llama is pale blue... whatever colours you throw at this image it seems to look right. Perhaps it’s because the llama looks slightly unhinged!

Here I stamped the image directly onto the DSP so that I could get all the fiddly bits without having to cut them out, then stamped again onto Whisper White for colouring with the Blendabilities. I’m not a fan of “fussy cutting” but I knew it would be worth it because I was blatantly CASEing this card, which I’d seen on Pinterest. Incidentally, I also Pinned this image because it’s so hilariously close to the stamped image that it makes you wonder if the stamp designer had seen it, too!

Oh, I just have too much to tell you all in one go, so I’ll stop rambling and cut to the chase:
