It's time for a new challenge at Aurora Wings! This challenge theme is Once Upon a Dream... or a Nightmare. I went with Dream. Halloween is not even on my radar this year, and I'm probably going to regret not being prepared. Also, it's been horribly cold and snowing since September 12, so my mind and body are in Winter mode. We totally skipped over Fall here.
For my Dream project, I used the image "Clara", obviously inspired by the Alexandre Dumas version of The Nutcracker, and literally about a dream young Clara has on Christmas Eve about a battle between an army of gingerbread soldiers and mice, and the Nutcracker who leads the gingerbread army and transforms into a handsome prince.
I kept the card white and light, using a snowfall embossing folder on the card base, and a black on white mat for the image. I coloured the image with Copics, and used some ruffled lace, pink lace, and cheesecloth under the mat. I finished it off with small star die cuts made from silver glitter paper, along with some clear rhinestones.
Head over to the challenge blog, if you haven't been there already, and check out my teammates other creations. They are really amazing, and there is a nice mix of Dream vs. Nightmare!
