Who doesn’t love a llama?


Today’s CAS (clean and simple) card features our llama from the whimsical Llama and Giraffe set.  The background and misty mauve paper matting is from one of my very favorite paper pads from ART-C.  The 6 x 6 card stock pad is called “office” with a wonderful assortment of vintage looking office like papers. The neutral tones and subtle textures work well when featuring a hand colored digi stamp.  

The llamas are colored with Copic markers ands mounted on the card with raised glue dots.

Alcohol Inks from Brea Reese

This square card was a total experiment with the Brea Reese Alcohol inks.  These super intense affordable inks are a fun medium for interesting backgrounds for your cardmaking.  I did not have any waterproof paper on hand so I took a gamble and used photo paper.  I was thrilled to see the colors mix and create this glaze-like layered effect.

My little chicks are from Vera Lane Studio’s Farm Animal set 2 .  The chicks are colored in COPIC markers and mounted on foam squares.  The stamp sticker is from K& Company.

My name is Bonnie Irvine and I live in a tiny rural town in western Ontario, Canada. I have been a craft fanatic since I was a little girl. It's always been my go-to free time activity. I love creating with paper, paint, inks, and especially digital stamps since they give me the flexibility I need for the various sizes and substrates I work on. Mixed media and art journaling are a particular favourite and I love the way Vera Lane Studio images spark my creativity and suit my colourful quirky style. I am delighted to guest design with this talented team this month.
