Hello everyone! Today I am helping celebrate Heffy Doodle’s new release by joining in on this awesome blog hop! The new release is now available for purchase from Heffy Doodle and official retailers, and we are celebrating with lots of inspiration and a giveaway, too!
For my card, I grabbed the new Otter Side stamp set to create a fun underwater scene. I couldn’t decide which otters to choose, so I decided to go with a slimline card so I could use several! They were all too cute!
I started by blending Distress Oxides in Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio, and Peacock Feathers onto white cardstock. I then placed the new Heffy Doodle Wave to Me stencil on the background and added more color on top to create a subtle pattern. You definitely should use Pixie Spray on this stencil if you can because the lines are a bit thin and delicate. I didn’t have any and it was a bit difficult to keep in place with just my hands and Heffy Memo Tape, but I think it turned out! I then spritzed the panel ,with water, blotted it up with a paper towel, and splattered with some silver watercolor. For the sand, I blended a bit of Distress Oxide in Antique Linen with some Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap before spritzing with water and die cutting with Heffy Doodle Slopey Joes.
I stamped several images from Heffy Doodle Otter Side and Oceans of Love in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored with Copics before cutting them out with the matching dies (Otter, Oceans). The dies from Otter Side are one of my favorite parts of the release! They cut the otters’ paws so they can hold items like the shells I added and also include wave dies so you can tuck the otters into them. How cool!
I arranged my images on my card to determine their placement before using my Misti to line up my sentiment from Otter Side and stamped with VersaMark and embossed with white. I then adhered the images and finished with a few white gel pen accents and some white bubbles in the water.
