Today is my sister's birthday. This is the sister that lives in Virginia, and is an equine surgeon. Yes, this is an otter and not a horse. The motto for her year at the University of Guelph was an otter so I knew that this little Lawnfawn set would be perfect for her birthday.
I started by masking a circle an then cutting the Paper Smooches 'waves' in masking tape. I masked the bottom half of the circle and stamped the otter. Before I lifted the tape, I fitted the top half of the masking tape back into the bottom half, so that my water would be perfectly masked. I sponged Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire below the water line and some Tumbled Glass just at the top. I then coloured the otter with Copics and cut out 3 little presents and coloured them as well (#thedailymarker30day). Finally I used some Stickles on the water and presents. The sentiment (Have an otterly great birthday) is stamped inside.
