Quiet Place

The challenge set by Stampotique (Joanne) this time around is clean and simple. Those of you who follow my blog know that I love love my embellishments so this was a REAL challenge for me.
I have used Smushasha from Stampotique, stamped in cobalt archival ink.  I cut three circles from scrap paper and used as masks and sponged colour through each mask using DI broken china.
Of course me being me, I could not quite leave it like that so I added dots around each circle.  The circles are meant to represent bubbles.
I added sentiment also from Stampotique and added "quiet" and "place" to the bubbles.  To complete, I added machine stitching and a little pop of colour with the gem in her hair and around her neck.  This is my version of CAS, hope it passes LOL. 

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, I really appreciate them all.  Enjoy your weekend. Tracy x x
