Tranquil Textures - Stampin Up dsp - smooshing ink

I've made a card very similar to this in the past but i've chosen to make the octopus slightly different this time.
I put a couple of drops of 'Soft Sky' ink onto a clear stamping block and then added some water from my aqua painter and gave it a little smoosh together. I then pressed the block onto some 'Whisper White' paper which transferred the water colour / wash effect from the block to the paper. This when dry was simply run through the big shot with the 'Under the sea' framelit on top. It's hard to pick up on camera but it does give a more textured look. 

For the rest of the card i took a piece of the 'Tranquil Textures' dsp to cover the base. 
'Sahara Sand' and 'Garden Green' inks are used to stamp the seabed, seaweed and netting.

Lastly the octopus is adhered with dimensionals and i used a couple of black gems for eyes to make it a fun card for a child. It looks like the octopus is waving.
