Different Gouache Effects

This was the final card that I made for the Royal Talens shows on Hochanda last week.  It was shown briefly in the second hour (if upside down lol).  I used one brush to create all the effects and very little water to mix the top layers.
I cut a piece of Sheena's stamping card to 14.3cm x 14.3cm and used a 0.5" flat brush to add yellow and blue Gouache paint, blending on the card to create green (adding a small amount of water to the brush).
Having dried everything (including the brush), I then added Yellow Ochre using the end of the brush to dab it over the background.
I then went back in with the blue paint (and a clean brush) using the same technique to add further texture.
A sentiment from the Small Talk Occasions book (Tim Holtz idea-ology) completed this very quick card front.  The topper was matted onto a piece of dark blue card 14.8cm x 14.8cm; which I unfortunately forgot to photograph before I sent my samples off to Hochanda.
