{Ellen Hutson} Otterly Awesome + Tree Farm

Hi everyone! If you've been following along on Instagram, I'm playing along with Kathy Racoosin's 30-Day Colouring Challenge and these are the cards for today, featuring Otterly Awesome and Tree Farm. My friends Angela, Lindsey and I are all using the same sets all month long for this challenge and it's been so much fun. I urge you to join in and crank up your creative juices!

I coloured all three otter images from Otterly Awesome, as well as the holiday accessories from Tree Farm. Then I paired up the accessories and sentiments with the otters to create two cards for different occasions. I just love how those two sets go so well together!

The first one will be a holiday card and the second will go to my husband on his next business trip.

To create the backgrounds, I used a 4x5 acrylic block and smooshed distress inks on it then misted it with shimmer spray, before placing it against the watercolour panel. Once it dried, I splattered a contrasting colour that was also used to colour the images.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

These are awesome, Em! The smooshed and shimmery backgrounds are just right for the sweet otters. Great thinking to use the accessories from Brandi's set!
