Alpaca my Bags!

Hi it’s Natalie again today aka Momma Sedds and I’m super excited to share my second card as Guest Designer for Heffy Doodle. I love the little llama’s from the llamazing llama’s Stamp Set and had this cute idea of them sailing away on a little cruise ship which I created using the new Boats and Barns Die. I started off by cutting out two rectangles sized 8.5 x 3.5 inches and blending Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold and Pink Flamingo Distress Oxides onto the card. Finishing off with some spritzes of water which I dabbed off and then adding some splatters of colour using the same inks. On the second rectangle I cut out some waves which I inked up using Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide inks again using the same technique of ink splatters and water spritzes. This time also adding some splatters of white acrylic paint as well. I also cut out a little sandbank too using the base of the boat and just trimming it. The same technique was used for this but with Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo inks. Setting these aside to dry I stamped, coloured and cut out my llamas and accessories and the fish from the Sealy Friends Stamp Set. I coloured up them with copic markers finishing them up by adding some details using white and black gelly roll pen. I went with a rainbow colour palette for my fish for a bright summery look.

After everything was inked and coloured up it was time to work on the boat, I love how versatile the die is, giving you the option to create a boat, ark or barn. Again I went for a nice bright pink to add a pop of colour against the kraft card. I love how the llamas sailing the ship with the big wheel, think they forget to pull up the anchor though! I wanted to create a chain for my anchor so threaded through some gold cotton tying it with a knot and gluing it behind the bottom of the boat. 

I cut out the rest of the pieces and adhered everything together. Popping the boat onto the base and adding a bit of foam tape to the waves to add some dimension. Then tucking the sand bank underneath and adding all the rest of the llamas etc. I felt like it needed a little bit of something else when it was all adhered so added a few birds in the sky with a copic outliner and added some dots of colour with some neon gelly roll pens. Then all that was left to add was the sentiments which I heat embossed in white onto black card and that was my card finished up. I have had so much fun guesting for Heffy Doodle this month and I hope you have liked my projects. Be sure to check back for more inspiration from the rest of the team.
