Clean & simple

Crafty Creations  new challenge this week is all about keeping  it clean and simple. The image and sentiment I have used were kindly supplied by this week's sponsor - Elizabeth Mae Design's.

I firstly printed out the enlarged black & white image straight onto my cardstock, I then printed it again on some patterned paper and stamped on some flourished and inked around the edges. I used a very light coloured Promarker (Satin) and gave the dress-form a hint of a shadow. I then used a silver marker to highlight the pins, finally I cut the sentiment and some patterned paper with pinking shears and added a pin and some ribbon and buttons from my stash to finish the design off - simples :o) Ooh and I doodled round the edge of the card to frame it all.
Some challenges I'm entering:
Celebrate the Occasion - Any Occasion- Must Use Ribbon
Partytime Tuesdays - Anything Goes
Digi Makeover Challenge - Re-size Your Digi's (I enlarged the original digi)
Heart Song Inspirations - Ribbon and/or Tag
Make it Monday - Always anything goes
My Craft Spot - Ribbon 
Gingerloft - Vintage or Distressed  
Allsorts - Keep it Simple

So many wonderful elements on this... love how you printed the image on patterned paper and the little silver pins... and that sentiment looks like it's stamped on a little swatch of fabric! So glad you joined us again at the Digi Makeove challenge.
