Golden Shimmer Watercolor Card

Here is a thinking of you card using watercolor and golden shimmer.

Sentiment:  I think of you often.

For this card, I used a mix of ink spray and gold shimmer watercolor.
The technique I used is called ink smooshing with a little bit of paint brush color mixed in.
I was going for a mixed media look, in keeping with the sketchy style of the images.
The card has a beautiful gold shimmer which looks prettier in person.

Here is a quick tip video tutorial.
