Distressed Ink Seascape

Playing with paints/inks, what a great challenge at Sentimental Sundays. I crumpled my card and applied distress inks with the darkest at the bottom and a little yellow sunshine filtering through from the top. My attempt seemed a little flat (probably need more distress ink colours!) so I stamped on top with my favourite HA background stamp to add some water movement. I initially used water to stamp, but only the left corner was visible, so I then switched to versamark and am much happier with the result.  I'm not sure if the submarine is caught in the net or is just floating by, but the birthday boy looks happy!  I kept the birthday sentiment crisp & white so that it really stands out from the background.
