MCV101 - Joy
This is my card for the current Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge where our Guest, Pam gave us this card for our inspiration:
I absolutely love the gold outline on Pam's dove and it was my intention to do the same thing with my Poppy Stamps dove, but when all the pieces stayed in after die cutting the gold mirror cardstock (at least initially! LOL!), I loved the drama the full-gold dove gave. I cut 2 white circles, one slightly smaller than the other. I coated the smaller one with adhesive. I cut the dove and the Essentials by Ellen JOY out of the larger circle and then inlaid the gold pieces back into the white circle, using the smaller, sticky circle to help hold it all together.
My background is a simple wash of 4 Catherine Pooler inks on Tim Holtz watercolour cardstock.
