Franci’s Otterly Adorable Card!

Hello there! Franci here with you today with an otterly cute card inspired by the current Color Inspiration Mood Board challenge! The current challenge will be open until Sunday February 17th at 11:59PM ET. I hope you will join us!

To make this card, I started with a Dotted Rectangle panel and die cut the heart with an Outside In Stitched Heart to create the window. I splattered gold paint on a lilac Watercolor Wishes panel and layered it behind the heart.

Next, I stamped the cute Winter Otter with Jet Black ink, colored with Copic markers and used the coordinating die to cut it out. After adding some cute details with white gel pen I attached the little otter with foam adhesive to the center of the heart! To finish my card, I stamped the sentiment added some sequins and a gold glitter heart!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Jessica’s Winter Otter Card

Good morning! Jess here with an alcohol inked card for our current Happy Little Critters challenge!

To start I stamped the adorable otters from Winter Otter with Versafine black ink and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored them with Copic markers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies. I also stamped the sentiment onto Black Licorice cardstock with Clear Embossing Ink and heat-embossed them with white embossing powder. I trimmed those down to thin labels and set them aside while I worked on the background.

Next I created a background by pouring a little Copic blending solution onto a piece of Yupo paper. Then I added drops of B60, B63, and B66 Copic refills and tilted the paper until the drops blended together and ran off the edge of the page. I thought this created a really pretty ocean for my otters! Once it dried completely I added thin lines of glue on the alcohol ink and sprinkled them with Prisma glitter. Finally I added my otters and sentiment with foam mounting tape and then added a little Prisma and Chunky glitter to the otters’ scarves to finish the card!

And that’s it! You have one more week to get crafty and I can’t wait to see your happy little critters! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!
