Starfish

It's a relaxing, peaceful Inspiration Photo this week  over at The House That Stamps Built:
 
No automatic alt text available.
 
My take was to do a soft oceany watercolor wash.  Then I stamped Repeat Impressions 4111-F, Starfish (sm) with Distress Inks 3 times on kraft cardstock, distressed with another shade of Distress Ink, fussy cut, distressed the edges with a distressing tool, used a darker Distress Ink on the edges and added to the card below:
