From the Otter Side...Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Inspirational Wednesday

Hello krafty friends!
It's INSPIRATIONAL WEDNESDAY,
the day we provide you with a bit of extra
inspiration to help you get creative
with your Kraftin' Kimmie stamps!



t's my turn to share a creation this week and I chose to feature our FROM THE OTTER SIDE stamp set. This set has a few adorable main images along with some fun coordinating sentiments. I stamped these two otters in our TOTALLY TAUPE ink on Arches 140 lb cold pressed watercolour paper, sketched in a background and did the entire scene in watercolour paints. I added highlights to the water with some white gouache.

  

Guess what??  This otterly wonderful stamp set
 is on SALE 40% OFF right NOW!!  
Hop on over to the shop to scoop it up this week!

Thanks for visiting...blessings!

Confession: I have never made is an ATC (artist trading card). These fun mini creations measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Thought it was time to give it a go! I inked up one of the images from Capture the Moment and stamped just a portion of the image in Wicked Black ink. I coloured the girls with Copic markers. The background panel was created by sponging the paper in our new Salty Sea ink and then using our Wonky Chevron stencil with Sparkling Sapphire ink. I also used a trio of Underwater Dots and a sentiment from the set to finish is off.
