MCV96 - Joy


Today I'm playing along with the current Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge, where Chriss gave us this beautiful inspiration:


I focused on Chriss':
-ombre colours
-busy background
-gold accents

I started by blending a 4.25x5.5 panel with Catherine Pooler Designs Ink in Rockin' Red, fading it out toward the top. 

I cut the panel with a Hero Arts Coverplate and then cut a scrap of gold mirror card with the coverplate to give me the bits to fill in.

I cut the Essentials by Ellen Joy from Gold Mirror card and 2 more times in white and stacked them together.

Here's a quick video:

Beautiful card, Ardyth! I love how you selectively filled in the background with the gold foil to use as embellishments, like sequins! Clever 😉❤️

Gorgeous card Ardyth! Love the colors you chose and the gold details you added for the coverplate background finish it very well.
