A fin-tastic day

Here's hoping that you have a fin-tastic Monday! I was using my shimmer mist sprays to make this background. After the ink dried, I stamped the swirl background by Impression Obsession over the tope with VersaFine black ink. It is hard to see the shimmer on the picture, but the background has a definite shimmer to it! I stamped the dolphin by Stamp Shoppe Creations and colored him with Copic Markers. Then I cut out the square, but cut around the head, so the dolphin looks like it is jumping out of the water. The I used a few swirl die cuts to look like a splash. The sentiment is also a Stamp Shoppe Creations stamp and I cut it out with a Nestabilities label die. Leaving the die on the paper, I sponged with a Blue Distress Ink. Thanks for stopping by!

Very sweet card :-) Great job on the colouring and the swirls are the perfect embellishment.
