I need to make Thank You cards for the Awards Sponsors at our Ohio State Fair Llama Show! Cheryl  drew this awesome llama just for ME for this very occasion, and called it Dawn’s Llama! I made this one an Appaloosa.

I printed 6 at a time and started coloring with Copics!

This is the Appy just colored… then I soaked a small rag with Blender Solution and went over the body…this gives a “textured” look.

See how it softened the spots?

Then I masked them and airbrushed. Each card will be different that’s for sure! Oh, and I’m not done yet! Glad I still have about a month to get them finished!! Winking smile

June28 OSF TY

In PSE7 I removed the dots from the ribbon and added my wording.

I embossed the TY layer and sponged with Distress inks. The card base is sponged with Distress inks to match the DCWV paper, the layer behind the llama is “faux” cardstock… I used white cs and colored the edges with the same Copic as the ribbon to match. To get that layer I just traced the outside of the same Spellbinders #12 die and cut it out.

For more Sassy inspiration,
see what the other girls have done!

Wow, wow, WOW! A ton of work and oh, so special! I love seeing your work in progress. I just got an air compressor. It is still in the box. I'm terrified to try it. Only hope I can master it as you have!
