My Significant Otter

It's a free for all at As You Like It this fortnight and I've inked up this sweet otter from Whimsy Stamps.  He's quite a large image so he's been given centre stage on my card as I didn't want to crop him. I love his expression and although I admit I did struggle with the shading on his fur, I'm surprisingly pleased with how he turned out.





Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Furr: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs, 
  • Greens: Twisted Citron, Shabby Shutters, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Blues: Blueprint Sketch
  • Reds: Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany

Happy crafting
