Hola!

Today I’m sharing a farewell card I made for a friend using the Heffy Doodle Llamazing Llamas stamp set. My friend Dani has moved to Barcelona, and I had to make a card for him. I’ve made some cards for him and his wife Carla, and I’m super happy because I know they cherish them 🙂 I chose these super cute llamas (or are they alpacas?) for his card because I think he would love them, and I wanted to color them, but I hadn’t had the chance.

I decided to stamp the images using sepia ink and color them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and colored pencils. I colored the llamas in different ways, trying to make them fluffy, and I think my best result was the brown one. I’m so happy with how that one turned out I can’t believe I colored it myself!

For the background, I used the Heffy Doodle Arizona stencil. I love how easily you can get a fantastic scene with this one! As I was going to use the Mama Elephant Comic Cover Wonky die, I inked the panel to have a different background on each row.

I stamped two sentiments, one on the first strip and the other on the last one. I think this way the card has a story feel. Then, I used foam tape to adhere the cover die-cut to the background and glued the images using liquid glue and foam squares.

Making this card has been bitter-sweet because I loved making it, and I’ve put lots of love, but it is always very hard to say farewell to a good friend. I hope he loves it!

I’m entering this card into the Heffy Doodlers February Challenge – Warm and Cozy:

because I think there is nothing warmer than the desert weather nor cozier than that fluffy alpaca wool 😛
