Artistic Dreamer Card

http://lacysunshine.weebly.com/store/p2148/Artistic_Dreamer.html

Lacy Sunshine is the current sponsor of the challenge at Crafting from the Heart. My choice for the Design Team inspirational card is Artistic Dreamer.

I colored this wonderful image using Copic markers and cut it out leaving a narrow white edge. I embossed light blue card stock using the Cuttlebug Folder #37-1136 Bloom Dots, to make a mat to adhere the cut image to. I placed these on a dark blue mat and adhered the layers to a white base card.

I look forward to seeing your work in the challenge at Crafting from the Heart.
