Otter Halves

This image was especially created for my best friend, my hubby, he loves otters and as they can mate for life it's very appropriate for our anniversary.

Did you know some of them even sleep holding hands!

I wanted to make a CAS card to showcase the image.  So all I've used is some card stock to create a frame for the image.

I've coloured the image with just polychromos pencils.  I wanted to get the effect of some fur with very fine lines which polychromos are excellent at doing.

The edge of the card has been distressed with Black Soot ink from Tim Holtz.  the sentiment was produced at the time of printing.

To finish off the anniversary theme I just added two tiny wooden hearts.

Happy anniversary hubby, I have no idea where the last four years went!
