Shello swimming at the beach

I made this card a month or so ago so I will try to remember what I did for the background.  Pretty sure I squeezed out distress stains including a metallic stain on my craft mat then sprayed the inks with water.  took a piece of cardstock and dragged it through the inks and let it dry.  next I stamped the seaweed, masked it and stamped Shello, got out my trusty Prisma color pencils to add a bit more color.  Cut the stamped card to size, edged with Krylon gold leafing pen then layered onto a piece of black glitter paper I picked up at craft store.  Layered the stamped piece onto a note card...stamped some more seaweed then added the tag with saying.  Can't you just see Shello swimming on the beach?
