Today’s card (6-4)

Hey guys!

Managed to sneak in a little bit more fun time this weekend. The end result? This card right here.

Ta-da!

The otter, fish and words are all from Julie’s Otterly Awesome stamp set from Ellen Hutson. Must say that it is pretty darn otterly awesome. ­čÖé The otter and fish were cut with the coordinating dies. The fact that the otters’ little paws in the stamp set can hold things when cut with the dies just plain slays me. I just plain love that.

Created the blue watery background by slapping some washi tape along the sides of a piece of watercolor paper and then brushing on some blue watercolors. Then I liberally splashed dots of water on top and then took my heat gun to it to dry it all up. I think the end result looks like water. Well, I think.

Today’s card (4-11)

Hi guys!

Just sharing a card I started last week and finished up this week, just in time for Easter.

The sweet girl + basket and the words are from Pretty Pink Posh, as are the sequins. Let’s be honest: I’m not the best color’er, but, good gosh, people, I try. I colored her in with markers and then added a few extra details with colored pencils and a white gel pen + some Glossy Accents and a Wink of Stella glitter pen (it’s subtle but there on the ears). I think she turned out alright.

The banner was cut with a die from Lawn Fawn (LOVE IT), and the patterned paper is from a stack of paper from My Favorite Things. Crazy thing. I colored the girl in first and went looking for patterned paper. I discovered that I am COMPLETELY lacking in purple patterned papers┬áso I was totally lucky to find this piece in my MFT stash. I guess I could have went to the craft store (Oh, the horror! Hee!) to find something else, but I decided I could make do. Yep. Make do. (Translation: Not allowing myself to be tempted at the craft store by all the other stuff at the craft store seemed like a good idea at the time… because… seriously… who goes for one piece of paper and leaves with just one piece of paper? Not I, people. Not I. Anyhoo, I digress.)
