Curious Otter

This adorable image is from FabrikaFantasy.   I've grown to love Fantasy coloring; it's easy to become somewhat addicted to these whimsical images.  I find them challenging my skills and creativity and that is great fun for me!  It's also fun because there really are no rules in fantasy; I can just do what strikes me at the moment! 

I chose to make this coloring book page into a birthday card for my daughter who loves otters! 

 Material List

As You Like It:  Fav Tip and Use It on Project ~ My tip is to shop your own house...not just your craft stash!  I'm constantly inspired by stuff around the house!  In this case, it was a broken sandal!  Warning:  This could turn your home into an episode of Hoarders!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Make yourself at home and feel free to peruse other posts/pages, leave a comment, and/or check out my Pinterest and YouTube Channel.


  1. Such a cute otter card, I love the vibrant colours and the bits you've added to your creation. I certainly don't get to see many crafting project featuring otters and it's such a shame now I think of it. But the hoarding issue sounds familiar to me, ha! Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

    Hugs, Veronika
