Ink Blending on Colored Cardstock

I haven't used the cool design of What the Doodle Waves in a while.

It's perfect for the following challenge at Papertrey:

hosted by Melissa Phillips

 stamps: Papertrey Ink What the Doodle Waves  die: Papertrey Ink Big Basics: Birthday

 I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed antique white embossing powder.
It lay gorgeous intricate lines that I ink blended on.
I sprinkled some drops of water for a little more~

I really enjoyed this one!

I've had this diecut laying around for awhile 
(I know because I'm out of this matte gold cardstock).

 So happy to find a home worthy of its goldness.

I lost the dots, so I used star confetti and I think it works~

 I'm also entering this card here:

 Not only did I go wild with color, but waves are the wildest! 

I grew up in I've been tossed about by those crazy creatures.

One even spit me out...on the sand...with my bathing suit top ROLLED up to my neck.

I'm not even exaggerating.

I'm not a party girl (can you guess that??? :))

...but that's as close to a wild party as I ever got. :)

What added even more fun...was choking on sea water and trying to catch my breath.
I'm just saying...some beaches are not for the faint of heart~watch yourself out there.

Thanks for stopping by!
