This little guy is just too stinkin’ cute! A friend of mine asked me to make her a card for her son, who is in 3rd grade, and was going through a difficult time. I immediately thought of this Otter cuz you just can’t be sad when you see his little face! I added a few other touches, such as the embossed background, but otherwise kept it pretty straight forward. I hope he likes it!

3. Using the 3 1-3/4” squares of Basic White cardstock, stamp the otter image in different directions using Black Memento ink.
4. Color in the otters using the Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil; use the Black Watercolor Pencil to darken his nose.
