Sending Llove

Greetings friends.  I absolutely love the new Llama Llove clear stamp set.  It has fun images to color as well as lots of coordinating "punny" sentiments.

For my card today, I wanted to use minimal coloring.  I stamped the clouds and llama with black Versafine ink onto 140lb watercolor paper.  Next, instead of coloring the entire sky, I added some bright blue watercolor paint around the cloud and used a waterbrush to fade the color to white.  For the ground, I gave the impression of ground with green watercolor paint instead of coloring a solid ground.  It takes a bit of practice to fade a color to white, but it is definitely worth it because it makes for quick and easy coloring. 

For the llama, I added a little grey watercolor paint to the body to give the impression of white fur.  I wanted the blanket to be brighter in color, so I colored each section directly with Zig Clean Color Brush markers.  Here is a closeup of the llama:

For an even faster card, you could leave off the clouds and simply add the llama with a little ground underneath.

Hope you try adding skies and grounds with a little watercolor paint!
