Cards in Envy: Just Beachy!

Cards in Envy:  Just Beachy Challenge. First my card, then the explanation:
My dear friend from Dog Days with Diana brought me a treat on her last visit - Color Burst.  My craft room is now covered in Color Burst powder (note to self:  turn off the ceiling fan before using this watercolor powder).  My fingers are stained (note to self:  wear gloves).  But an inky crafter is a happy crafter, right?!?  I tapped blue Color Burst onto dry watercolor paper, spritzed on plain water, tilted the paper to spread the color, and .  It looked OK, but boring.  So I spritzed on pearl mist, and moved the paper.  Ahhhhh!  Much better.  The second application of water added the lighter channels, and highlighted the channels with iridescence.  The chipboard fish are from MAMBI, and accented with clear sequins.  The bubbles are also clear sequins, and look like they are in a straight line in the photo, but not in person.  Huh?  Sentiment from Unity.  Not the greatest outcome, But I thought I would share my process anyway.  I learned a lot!!!  Need another challenge?  Check out
