For this Mother’s Day card I used the Otterly Love You stamp set from My Favorite Things.
I started on the background. I used Distress Ink. I took my mini ink blending tool, added Distress Ink to it and stamped the tool onto the paper. This leaves a circle shaped impression on the paper. I used four Distress Ink colors: Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough, Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers. I also wanted to create some little dots, so I used the Polka Dots stencil from My Favorite Things. I used a light hand and added Cracked Pistachio onti it from the middle of the panel towards the outside. I also added some Mermaid Lagoon in some spots.
I die cut the panel with the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX from My Favorite Things and set it aside.
I stamped the otter images, where the otter is holding the baby. I colored it with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used:
Mom otter: E57 – E29
Baby otter: E43 – E31
I stamped the sentiment in Soot Ink from Lawn Fawn and adhered the image onto the panel. I added the panel to a white cardbase.
It’s meant to be a Mother’s Day card, but it can be used for other occasions.
