You can create a great "wave" effect by combining dye ink, gloss cardstock, and a piece of roughly ripped cardstock! Rip a piece of cardstock so that you have a nice long "roughly" ripped edge. Ink up your sponge with dye ink, in the colour of your choice, and then hold the piece of ripped card on the gloss card surface and rub the ink from the piece of ripped card and onto the gloss card. Continue doing this all over your gloss cardstock, moving the ripped piece around and changing the "direction" of it each time. This can give you a wonderful wave effect.
