In love with Otters!

Happy Wednesday crafty friends! Had the chance to spend some quality time in my craft room last weekend and I decided to pull out my MFT Otters.  For those of you that don't know me, I am a huge animal lover and should probably be running an animal refuge! One particular (besides dogs, of course) is otters. I am simply in love with otters and would love to give one a good home (much to my husbands trauma, lol!)

I tend to purchase any otter set on the market but this guy from the My Favorite Things Otterly Love You set is by far my favorite!


This project began after I played with some of my alcohol inks and one of the backgrounds became my waves die cut with the Mama Elephant Ocean Waves Trio dies.  I then used another Mama Elephant die (Madison Avenue) for my frame and background. I used Salty Ocean Distress Oxide for the sky and sprayed it with my Distress Sprayer for texture.

I then used my Copic Sketch in E71, W3, W1 and WO for my Otter. I also colored some of the fish from the same set with simple coloring.


I put the card together and decided on the Mama Elephant Hello Friend Script Creative Cut and used my new obsession Tonic Glitter paper.  I die cut three and stacked them for dimension and then glued them to the background.  

To finish the project I scattered a mix of Studio Katia jewels and Hero Arts Ocean sequins. I have been making many friendship cards, I guess winter has a way of letting you know to send out some happy mail!

Thanks for taking the time!
