What you'll learn

In the tutorial, 1 pattern (Honey) will be made, but the other two patterns were made using the same technique. The base colour of the pattern was painted with gel varnish and a glittery, reinforcing base was applied on top for a subdued shimmer. This is then embossed with classic embossing stamps and further decorated with gels. For this I used a self building gel and contouring gel for dotting and lines.
