Sea Otter 3 Ways!

Good morning! 
First I have to apologize for my blog right now. I am aware that it has the Photobucket watermark all over it.  I am in the process of getting my blog revamped.  Not sure why all of a sudden this watermark is popping up. I wish I were a bit more techy!
So please bare with me!
Today I have 3 cards using Whimsy Stamp's new Adorable Otters set.  For this first card I used my Zig Clean Color markers.
I used the new Curly Q's background stamp to add a bit of contrast. I stamped it in Versamark on black paper and embossed it in white. I popped the water colored otter on top of the embossed background using Crafty Foam Tape.  (LOVE this stuff!) I added ribbon and decided I needed an itty bitty flower.  I used the Build a Garden die set on water color paper.  Popped it on the card with a bit of white string and a gem for the center.  
My next two cards I created a mask using an oval die and masking paper.  I stamped the otter in Versafine black ink (Because it is waterproof and perfect for watercoloring) and masked him off.  I used Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers. I spritzed it with water while the mask was still in place. I removed all of the masks and colored the otter with Zig Clean Color markers.  I stamped the sentiment in Versafine black.  The heart was stamped in Versamark and embossed in pink. I added a few hearts from the Love Hearts Sparkletz collection. 

This last card I did the same masking as above but changed the colors a bit.  I used Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed it in white.  I added a few red sequins and gems from the Peppermint Jazz Sparkletz collection to finish it off.  
Thanks for stopping by and putting up with this crazy blog!  Hopefully I can get it fixed soon! If you can recommend someone who does blogs, please let me know!
