I adore everything from Hello Bluebird and just had to use this SUPER cute Otter stamp set from my stash.
I started by stamping all of the images from the Hello Bluebird’s Otter Friends stamp set onto Neenah Solar White, 80 lb, cardstock with Gina K Designs’ Jet Black Amalgam ink and then colored them with Copic markers.
To create the background, I ink blended Distress Oxide Speckled Egg, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, and Chipped Sapphire inks onto a slimline card front. Next, I splatters the ink blended panel with water, Nuvo’s Nebula Blue Mica Mist, and the Distress Oxide ink colors – I love the beautiful texture this adds to the card.
Once this background dried, I die cut it with Whimsy Stamps’ Slimline Marquee die and then adhered the cutouts directly to the card base. Next, I added acetate to the windows and two layers of double sided tape so I could make a shaker card. For the shaker bits I decided to use colors similar to the background so lighter and darker shades of blues as well as clear shaker bits.
For finishing touches, I added a layer of black Sakura Gelly Roll pen to the eyes and noses of all the otters and the eyes of the fish. Lastly, I added Nuvo’s Midas Touch Aqua Shimmer pen to all the yellow fish and Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear Sparkle pen to the green fish.
Thanks for stopping by and spending a little time with me today!
