I sponged distress inks onto a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock and spritzed with water before setting aside to dry. Once it was dry, I stamped the waves using white pigment ink, which you can hardly see in the photos! The otters were stamped, colored and die-cut. I also went over them with a piece of towel wet with colorless blender to give a bit of texture and followed that up by adding dots of color on the darkest parts using the E43 marker.
The card front was assembled using a strip of patterned paper, a white embossed sentiment and a negative circle die-cut. All of which were popped up on foam tape.
Thanks for visiting! I'm linking this up to MFT's sketch challenge, Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes and CAS on Sunday's critters challenge.
