Make a Splash!

Hi folks! Here's one of the samples that I made for Joanna Sheen from the newly released 'Countryside' rubber stamp collection designed by Jayne Netley Mayhew. A beautiful, gentle collection with some fabulous sentiments too.
I used some lovely K&Co patterned papers for this card. I used my paper trimmer to cut the squares, inked the edges and carefully adhered them using dimensional glue gel. (Great for nudging into place) I stamped the sentiment and die cut it with my Nestabilities oval die. I also used my Nesties to cut the Scalloped Oval, Rectangle and Scalloped Rectangle. I stamped the Otter and painted him with my Koi watercolours. I tore around the Otter and inked the edges with Antique Linen distress ink. I added a small ribbon above the sentiment and finished off the card with some glossy accents on the otters eye and nose.
Ciao for now!
