Otterly Clean & Simple


I've had the Otter Side Stamp Set, from Heffy Doodle, for a little bit.  I kept thinking I wanted to do a fun water scene with several otters in it.  Surprisingly, when I sat down to stamp with the set, the cards I made came out completely clean and simple - not at all what I was originally thinking.  Has that happened to you before?  I think these cards actually showcase the fun sentiments in the set a little more, and anything with otters is just super cute, so I do love the finished cards.    

For the first card, I stamped the water line first, in Catalina Splash ink, then stamped it a second time onto a piece of painter's tape to create a mask.  I fussy cut the waves so that I could mask the water while stamping the otter, in Hazelnut Blend ink.  Then I stamped the sentiment in Black Amalgam ink.  

After stamping everything, I colored the image in with a few Prismacolor pencils.  Once colored, I used a black pen to darken in the eyes, and a white gel pen to highlight the nose.  Then I matted the card front onto another piece of white card stock, and added it to a white card base. 

I laid all the stamps out for my second card, then pulled stamps out so I could stamp the individual colors.  (Same ink colors used as in the first card.)  I used the same pencil colors as well, to color in the image.  Again, the card front was matted with white card stock, and adhered to a white card base.  

As I said, these cards were super simple and quick to make.  I love them though - they would be easy to create multiples for sending out in bulk.  

Thanks for stopping by!
