Paper Smooches cool shades challenge

I've had this card in my head for so long, I'm glad it's finally on paper so I can move on to something else!
The background was made by dabbing a few different colours of distress ink (Peacock, Salty Ocean and Mowed Grass)onto an acrylic block, spritzing with water and stamping directly onto the card base. I then used the Paper Smooches Surf and Turf set to create an underwater scene using the colours from this week's cool shades challenge.

A pretty flat card when all's said and done but I couldn't resist using a bit of perfect pearls on the starfish for a tiny bit of texture!

Paper smooches play

Hi there!

Having finally got my hands on some new stash I'm playing along with a few challenges today

I made a card for a friend's wedding and I think it turned out pretty cute but actually more appropriate for an engagement, so this one goes into the box for now and I'll have a go at something more weddings another day.

I was inspired by the banners and the gorgeous colours on the this weeks case study challenge, I used Paper smooches stamps (and a bit of lawn fawn too) and there are dots on my card so I would like to enter my card to the following challenge blogs this week...
