MiC inspiration - Aleisha Clean and Simple

Hello MiC fans, I'm here with this weeks theme of Clean and Simple, sometimes I look at some of the cards made with copic coloured images I see around blogland and they are amazing works of art, really layered and detailed with loads of embellishments and quite frankly they scare the pants off me!  WOW how do you compete with that? 

Well, you know what?  You don’t have to, all you need to do is develop your own style and I’m here to show you that you can do CAS with amazing images like Aleisha from Make it Crafty and this style really helps to let the image and your colouring be the focus of your project.  Don’t be afraid of white space!

I've layered a spellbinders labels 24 die cut twice, I placed one on the diagonal and cut the other into 4 pieces which I positioned on the corners.  These ties are squarish and I needed a rectangle shape for my image, so I improvised.

I hope you take some time to try out a Clean and Simple style project sometime soon!
