I'm going to show you how to do a background using masking fluid.
The masking fluid itself is good for all water based products and can be applied using a paintbrush. The great thing about using masking fluid is no matter how detail the stamp you can still mask it
For this particular tutorial I used Stampin up "The Open Sea stamp set, with father's day coming up I thought it might be good way to start .
Here's how to do the card.

Once you happy then we can mask them.
Stamp the ship in the middle of the shape. Blend the edges of the shape as before.
Tie a reef knot ( left over right and right over left) . Leave long enough tails to go around the card to the back, and have it towards the left side of the card.
