Another from my long crafting weekend. I first saw this technique and this card on Mary Fish's blog, and I immediately knew I had to make it for myself.
First of all, I thought layering and building up the "Joy" cut out was genius, and I love how it gives the card easy dimension as well as instant interest--in person, you can see that the layers below the gold foil are Island Indigo.
Secondly, while I might have used the Stripes decorative mask diagonally, I would have never thought to use only partially color it in. I also love how the smears of ink give the card a clean and abstract look.
It's so simple, and so pretty! If you want to make one of these yourself--and you should--check out Mary Fish's video on how to use Adhesive Sheets before you use your framelits. It makes this gorgeous card much easier than it looks.
