It's Otterly Hot!

The title of my post today should let you know exactly how the temps have been in my area--over 90* everyday since Friday! Coincidently, as a sneak peek,  I have a card with Otters on it to show you for today! :-)

These adorable little otters are part of DRS Designs new release that will be available for purchase this Saturday, July 10th.  (As soon as the new releases become available, you can see them all HERE.) I colored this image with Copic Markers and then masked it so that I could sponge blue ink around the otters for the sky.  There's something about water cards that make me always want to use twine rope as an embellishment and the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls Embossing folder to add dimension.  Perhaps it's from my younger days when I'd often go boating with Grandpa in the Summer. Water, Twine rope, and waves all go hand-in-hand!

 And of course when there's water on an image I always reach for the Diamond Glaze--there's nothing like that realistic effect! The Fun In The Sun sentiment (D1072) is also by DRS Designs.

Stay tuned for tomorrow, as I'll have another sneak peek from DRS Designs next release.

Thanks for stopping by!
