Otterly Mad for Otters

Sorry for the punny title but I have made another card using MFT Otterly in Love stamps.  Those otters are soooo cute!
 
MFT Otterley in Love stamps and dies used to make a birthday card
 
I used some Distress Inks to colour in the sea panel, masking it off first and then I blended Peacock Feathers, Evergreen Bough and Mowed Lawn. 
 
I coloured in the otter with some Copics, W5, W3 and W1 as I wasn't happy with my original colouring with browns...I need some more Copics!  I also coloured in the fishies with Copics and then went ahead & die cut all of them out.
 
My Favorite Things Otterley in Love stamps used to make a birthday card
 
I put some Glossy Accents on the heart and popped the otter up on some foam dimensionals. 
 
I was under pressure to get this card finished as we have been busy this weekend - it was my husbean's birthday (we went out for a lovely meal last night to our favourite Thai restaurant and we are off to see Ruby Wax this evening at our local opera house).   I wanted to take the photo before the light faded.  It's been snowing lightly all day so it's been a bit overcast.
 
I also wanted to put some little white bubbles coming out of the fishes mouths but I wasn't sure if it would look right and I was worried I wouldn't like it or mess it up (which I have a habit of doing) and I didn't want to have to start all over again, so I left it as is...wise decision Wendy!
 
Toodles for now...

UPDATE

OK - I caved in and added the bubbles...I think I prefer it with than without?  At least I didn't ruin the card! YAY!!
