Part 1 of 3: Llama Love!

Okay I have a confession to make: I lllllllllllove llllllllllamas!!! So when I saw the new Flora & Fauna Llama Garden set I had allllllllll the heart eyes! It’s so cute! Check it:

Flora & Fauna Llama Garden

And it goes perfectly with my Larry the Llama pouch that my sister got me. I use it to keep my Zig Clean Color markers in — Zig Clean Color markers + the Llama Garden set = a match made in heaven!

I bet it comes as no surprise to you that I got a lil carried away and made 3 cards! :) So, I’ll be sharing one each day for the next few days, starting with this guy:

I used the markers here not only to color him, but also on that stamp from the Flora & Fauna Texture Two set! I just scribbled directly on the stamp, then gave it a light mist with clean water and stamped it — love the watercolor look it gives! Those markers are so bright and vibrant.

Here’s a closeup so you can see it better:

In case ya didn’t know, Zig Clean Color markers are water based, so they react with water — kinda like water based ink! You can also blend them — just use a damp regular paintbrush or better yet, a water brush (I use this one from Pentel, it has the best tip and a large reservoir). Zig also has a blender marker but I’ve never tried it since water works so well.

You can also blend the markers with each other — on the cacti I first put down light green along the left edge, then went over it with yellow green, leaving a bit along the righthand side uncolored, and then went over the yellow green part with the water brush. Before I forget, I should add that this card is all on watercolor paper — while it’s not 100% necessary I find that it does work better than cardstock.

Speaking of the cacti, I used another stamp from that Flora & Fauna Texture Two set to make the “sand”! I used orange twist and party dress inks for those — no boring sand for this llama! I almost grabbed the cactus stamp from this Flora & Fauna llama set to make a whole trio — will have to try that on another card!

In case you were wondering, that teeny tiny “hi” stamp is from the Flora & Fauna Soul Happy set. So cute! :)

You can find ALL of the markers HERE, and my faves in the supply list below! Here are the markers I used on this card:

Oh and! I used these flower sequins from Impress, but I’ve listed a few more options in the supply list below. :)


Find the Llama Garden set and even more llamas over at Flora & Fauna — I just love all of their stamps and dies so much! They make me smile every time I use them.

  1. I also llllllove lllllllamas! With the waterbased markers, I’m wondering which type of black ink you used so it wouldn’t smear when you used the water brush. Thanks.
    And I love your llama bag too!

  2. This is just too cute! Your Llama coloring is sensational with the Zig Markers! Llama tell you that I adore this and can’t wait to see more!
