Monkey Sea Slimline Card for FMS446

Hi all! Freshly Made Sketches had a slimline card for their weekly challenge and I couldn't resist! Slimline cards are all the rage now and they are so fun to make because you have so much more room to build a scene.
I just purchased these cute Avery Elle Monkey Sea underwater monkeys and thought they would make a great underwater scene.
The background was ink blended with 3 Distress Inks shown below on Bristol Smooth card stock. I splattered with a lot of water and blotted off with a blue shop towel. I also splattered Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust for some nice sparkle.
The bottom of the ocean and the sentiment are from Waffle Flower's Under the Sea Sentiments and Panel Die.

The images were all stamped with Altenew's Obsidian Black Ink onto Ranger's Inkssential Water Color card stock and colored with Derwent Inktense Water Color pencils. I used the coordinating Monkey Sea Monkey Do dies to cut the images. 
My last step was to add Nuvo Crystal Glaze onto the goggles and a few parts of the ocean scene. It gives that nice clear raised 3 dimensional effect. Here is the inside of the card:
Really fun card to make and thank you to Freshly Made Sketches for the challenge!
