The other day when I made a card I had made a few distress ink backgrounds. Toady’s design is a different theme but the same principal using another of the pieces created that day.

The distress ink background was stenciled twice with two different stencils, One in blue acrylic paint and the other with gesso. None of this is very visible but does add to the background. Then stamped with assorted stamps from the Stampin’ Up set Stippled Shells.

The sentiment is stamped on mulberry paper and then using a gel medium glued down. The sentiment is by PSX

The starfish embellishment was cut 4 times and stacked. This was easier than trying to put 3-d mounting tape on the back and a much sturdier backing for all those skinny legs.

And one more look at the card before you go on about your day….

    Love this one Bonnie, but I love all of your cards. Was surprised to hear you used mulberry paper in the background. And the stencils too! They seem to be making a comeback. I love what you did!
