What's kraken?

I just got my hands in this lovely stampset from Lawn Fawn (loveable legends) and I put it, and myself, to work immediately...
The challenge over at AAA cards is anything goes, I just wonder if it's CAS enough, oh well it needed all the components I've put on it ;-)....well I think so lol.

I stamped the sentiment onto the cardbase with Versafine black onyx and the waves with Ranger dye inks (Caribbean coast and blue ribbon). I then used the mini blending tool to apply some Salty Ocean from the Distress line, adding a pop of color, contrasting with the orange beast. 
I stamped the kraken with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored it with my Spectrum  Noir markers, cut it out and neated up the edges with the Memento marker, then raised it with foamtape.
Few transparent blue sequins as bubbles and as a means to help your eye travel across the card.

This card is almost identical to the Nessie one I entered into the Inkspirational challenge, loving hte stampset and the design...obviously, right?
