Gold watercolor background celebration gnome card ~ tutorial

 Hello.  For Technique Time at Unity, I share ways to make a gold watercolor background and a festive celebration look to this gnome card.

Sentiment:  Party like it's gnome body's business.

For this card, I made gold watercolor background accents and a touch of watercolor on the front panel.  This creates nice shimmer card accents.  It is perfect for Happy New Year, birthday cards and more.

Helpful tips:
Here are helpful tips for creating this gold watercolor background gnome card.  To begin, stamp and trim a card front panel.  Also, color in the gnome stamping.  Next, trim a black or dark background cardstock panel to fit the card base.  Then, mix gold shimmer watercolor with water and also mix a silver or white watercolor.  Next, using a wide paint brush, brush gold watercolor in stripes along the long edge of the background panel.  Then, add gold watercolor to the gnome's hat using a narrow paint brush.  Also, add a mask over the gnome & the glass and then splatter gold watercolor over the gnome panel.  Then, splatter the background panel with gold splatter and then splatter white or silver watercolor over the gnome's hat.  Finally, assemble the card, to finish.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
