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!
