Elegance .....

This 4 x 4 inch card was made from a piece of white cardstock which I trimmed to size.  I started by sticking a short length of TH Tissue Tape with a music theme across the card at an angle.

I then used a 0.2 black Micron pen to draw two lines above and below the tape to emphasize.

Next I stamped the ballerina (by Stamping Bella) in Archival black ink as shown.  Her dress was coloured with Marvey alcohol ink markers.

Finally the printed word 'Elegance' was edged with the same Micron pen before sticking in place as shown.  Very simple but effective I think !

This card also fits the bill for the Less is More Challenge blog for week 190, the theme for which is Face The Music & Dance.
