In Love With You

Yeah, it's Saturday my friends!   For me Saturday usually means crafting in between loads of laundry and today is no exception.

I made a simple Valentine/Love card using the Otterly Love You stamp from MFT Stamps again.  The otters in this stamp set are so adorable and a really good size.

For this card I cut a piece of 110lb white card stock with one of the Stitched Circle Stax die-namics from MFT Stamps and inked it up with Salty Ocean Distress Ink.  I then sprayed it with water, using the Distress Sprayer, and blotted it with a paper towel to give the background more texture.

The Otter was stamped, coloured with Copic markers and cut out using my Brother - ScanNCut.  The rocks were stamped, coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut out.

I mounted the finished circle with foam tape in the middle and slightly to the top of the A2 card front and then stamped the sentiment with Versafine - Onyx Black ink.  I little heart under the sentiment is a prismatic heart sticker that I bought last year from the dollar store .

For the last finishing touch to the card, I put a few drops of Nuvo - Morning Dew-Crystal Drops to look like bubbles in the water.  This is the first time I have used these drops and really love how they turned out.  I think they would make perfect dew drops on flowers and leaves.

Here's a close up so you can see the Nuvo drops better.
