You're Nauti-Cool!

I just love that sentiment "You're Nauti-Cool"... LOL
It is from the Avery Elle "Knotty" stamp set, which I have used to make this card with nautical colour inspiration.

The little cute fishes are from a Paper Smooches stamp set and I have water coloured them using TH Distress Inks and fuzzy cut them.

The background is made using a "Falling Snow" stencil from SSS and a Texture stencil from Memory Box. First I used the snow stencil (turned up-side-down) to make the lightly tone of boobles. Then I used the other stencil on top of the boobles using my ink blending tool to add the ink colours. I made sure only to ink up the bottom half of the stencil.  

To finish off the card I stamped the compass in the upper corner with pigment ink and waited a bit for the ink to dry before stamping the fun sentiment.

This card I really, really like. Colourful, fun and nautical-cool at the same time :o)
