Magnolia-licious Challenge DT - Clean and Simple

 Good morning!  It's a new challenge over at Magnolia-licious today and we're looking for "Clean and Simple"!  I find this really hard to do because I just want to stick things all over it when I'm making them but actually really love the end result of clean and simple cards.  It's been ages since I coloured on kraft cardstock, I love the look it has given to the card.
 I have used Tilda Longstocking and coloured her with Copics and Prismacolor pencils.  I've also added quite a lot of dots with a white gel pen!
 You can see in this close up I have added the effect of a lace trim to the bottom of her dress using the gel pen as well as dots to the dress.
 I've used a Martha Stewart punch along the bottom of the kraft cardstock before mounting onto a white card base.  That's it!  Clean and simple!  I'd like to say it was also quick and easy because it is clean and simple but the colouring took a long time on kraft cardstock lol!
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's clean and simple cards, you won't be disappointed!
As always Diana is sponsoring the challenge with a special prize from the Magnolia-licious store for the lucky winner.  Thanks for looking!

Hi Jane, gorgeous card, what a brilliant idea to stamp on craft card! I'm going to try your idea out for two Male cards I need to make, obviously not with Tilda! lol. Hugs xx
