Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) back with another guest design post for Heffy Doodle. One of the newer sets, Otter Side, really pulled at my heart strings when I saw it and knew right away that I’d have to use them for a card.
I went with creating a slimline card because I wanted to use all the otters in this set. I almost did except for one because I wanted to incorporate the sky with this water scene. I mapped all my images out on a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock and realized I would have to do some masking I stamped everything on the card along with masks for every image using Blackout Ink.
To create the waterline, I used the very top portion Stormy Seas stencil. I am super impressed with how thought out this stencil is. I love how you have so many options and you can slip in the card to use the negative and positive of the stencil. I rotated the different waves for the water using Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch.
Because these inks are water reactive, I used a waterbrush to draw lines to add some texture. I also used a stiff brush along with white gouache to add some sea foam on top of the waves. I like adding the bit of texture, otherwise, it’ll be a bit plain. Once the background was complete, it was time for my favorite part of masking… removing the masks! It’s so fun! I colored up the otters and rocks using copic markers (colors listed below). Once everything was done, I die cut my card panel using a stitched slimline die and matted it on a white slimline card base (3.5in x 8.5in) .
To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment I wanted to use on black cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using white detail embossing powder. I trimmed down the sentiment and matted it on white cardstock.
I adore how this card turned out and it just makes me so happy. I hope you enjoyed it too!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Happy Crafting!
