Extreme Surfing Happy Birthday TSSC 161

What young man doesn't like to extreme surf?  This is my card for the Technostamper 161 sketch challenge.

Stamps: Extreme Surfing, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Buttons Buttons
Papers: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Basic Black, Elegant Soiree designer paper
Inks: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Black Stazon, So Saffron. Versa Mark
Accessories: Texture Plate Kit #4, Scallop edge punch, 3/4" round punch, 1/2" round punch, mat pack, linen thread, Iridescent Ice Embossing powder, Crystal Effects, Word Label Punch, Modern Word Label Punch

The base card is Pacific Point, upon which is matted Whisper White which has been sponged with Pacific Point ink.  The next layer, Baja Breeze, was run through the Big Shot using a Texture Plate to provide the horizontal lines in the skyline.

Here's how I made the background for the surfer.
With Pacific Point ink I sponged around the outside edge of a piece of Whisper White card stock. I sponged over the same area several times until I got the depth of colour I wanted.  Then, with Baja Breeze, I sponged towards the middle, overlapping the Pacific Point sponging a bit - but leaving an uninked area in the center.  This was sponged with a bit of Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight.
The image was stamped with Black Stazon ink.
After the ink was dry, Versa Mark ink was applied to the entire surface and Iridescent Ice embossing powder was applied X2.  This gives the image a wet droplet look.

One of the button stamps from the Stamp set "Button, Button" was stamped on Whisper White card stock using So Saffron ink.  It was punched out with a 3/4" round punch, as were 5 other circles of the same size using So Saffron card stock.  The layers were adhered together with Crystal Effects.
A second button was stamped, and a 1/2" circle punch was used to punch out the middle of the button.  The edge of this was sponged with So Saffron ink and applied to the top of the button.  The entire top of the button was then covered in Crystal Effects. When dry, the button was attached to the card with a glue dot.
A reef knot was made with Linen Thread and applied to the top of the button.
