Jill here, and this week I am going 'otterly nuts'...
...for the brand spanking new Otterly Adorable from Mama Elephant.
I love otters, they are one of my particular favourite animals, the way they swim on their backs holding hands...gaaaah! They are just such beautiful, gorgeous creatures. So seeing them take centre stage in this new set...oh be still my beating heart!
I started by colouring a few different sheets of vellum using Distress Inks, (I only learnt yesterday this would work. HOW did I not know?!). In any case, I coloured my vellum in various blue/greens, and also covered a sheet in white pigment ink. I then cut them, at varying heights, into waves using the cloud border from Mama Elephant's Landscape Trio Dies, by simply turning the die upside down.
I then cut a frame from a piece of card using Lawn Fawn's Cross Stitched Rectangles and layered up my vellum waves behind.
I stamped out and coloured my favourite image in the set, which is obviously the little guys on their backs, and the little heart also included, then fussy cut everything.
I finished off my sentiment by stamping straight onto the vellum along the bottom of my scene, and clear heat embossing.
I cut the smallest rectangle that makes up my frame, from my card blank to allow the light to shine through, and mounted my panel onto it using foam tape.
I really hope you like it, and hope you love the new Mama Elephant release as much as I do!
As always, everything I have used is linked below so be sure to check it out.
See you next week.
