There’s No Otter Friend Like You with Jess

Good morning!  Jess here with a otter-filled shaker card using products from our July release! To start I stamped the otters and fish from Otter Friends with versamark and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I watercolored them with my zig markers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies.  I also added a few accents with a white gel pen.  Next I blended mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch, and chipped sapphire distress inks onto a piece of bristol smooth cardstock.  I die-cut the Gallery Frame #1 die with white cardstock and with the blended background.  I reserved the white...

On the card base, I masked off areas for some ink blending. The...
