Meljen's Otter

I love Meljen's otter, and I meant to use it as soon as I bought it, but just didn't get round to it. When we go to Devon we try and visit the otter sanctuary and butterfly farm at least once a year, the butterflies are so calming, I found a peace and relaxation sitting in the steamy manufactured jungle and watching huge beautiful creatures flying round me, and then to go outside into whatever the weather throws at us and see the otters being fed and playing. I saw a pair of otters playing like this under water. I coloured the otters with Graph'It pens, I only have brown and I wanted to enter two challenges (at least), Meljen's and Graph'It's challenges.
I cut out the shapes with a Grand Spellbinders die set, and I the card blank was cut to match in beige rose embossed card. The ribbons are by Junkitz (the worded ribbon) and Crafty Ribbons and the gems are coloured with brown Graph'It pen.

I have entered the following challenges:
Graph'It  Marker challenge - anything goes optional Chocolate heaven/shades of brown
Allsorts Challenge blog - anything goes (Sat)
Cards Galore - anything goes - 3rd and final entry (Sat)
Avenue 613 - anything goes/optional Winter colours or theme (Sun)
Polkadoodles - anything goes (Thurs 16, winners Tues 22nd Jan)

  5. well done Cazzy! love it..and one down below well done on starting already!

    .. oh and re the pencils yes knew about the blending with stumps and have done it..
    ... but find it easier with this sort of stamp not to use it as there is so mcuh detail it does not need it... and to be honest dont find blending hard, I also felt it overworked it.. maybe am weird.. thanks for letting me know though.
    love Shaz.x
