Inspirational Wednesday - Llama Drama!

Hello krafty friends!
It's INSPIRATIONAL WEDNESDAY,
the day we provide you with a bit of extra
krafty inspiration to help you get creative
with your krafty stamps!


Hi everyone!  I chose one of my favourite sets, Llama Drama! 

And here is my make with it:


I stamped the super cute llama in Wicked Black Hybrid Ink.  I colored everything in Prismacolor Pencils, and added a final touch by inking the Summer Sunbeams stencil with salty sea ink and mounting the llama on an action wobble!  I also added Rainbow Krafty Dots to finish off the card. 

If you want to add this stamp set to your 
collection, just go visit the KKS Shop!
and find Llama Drama for 40% OFF this week!

Happy kraftin'!
