The colours of the CAS Colours and Sketches this week reminded me of the ocean, the beach say and how I go there sometimes to winddown and relax.
I thought my card represents the sea, you might need some imagination but it's the sea ;-).
I used Distress inks ( blueprint sketch, faded jeans and mermaid lagoon) on an acryllic block , spritzed it with Perfect pearls mist. not sure the photo shows it, staped it on watercolour paper.
Then I used the droplets left to fill in around the block, mostly cos I made a stain..ssst..
I used the Simon Says Stamp relax die and white cardstock for the sentiment and a few sequins as bubbles or foam.
