In today's climate how many of us can say we are blissfully unaware? - probably wish we could! Wouldn't it be nice to have no worries, hear no bad news or struggle with ill health or just life in general.

The only stipulation for this creation was it must contain circles and dots - which I hope you will agree have been incorporated successfully into this design. The backing papers were from "Forever Friends" and "Precious Petals" CD Roms I have in my collection.

This digi image is from digi doodles and is called "Sleeping Infant". I used the following copics to colour image
E50, E00, E21 and E11 skin tones E93 lips
R0000, R000, R00 and R01 nightie and bonnet
W00, W1 and W3 shadows to blanket

I added a small touch of stickles (Star Dust) here and then to the frill of the blanket and finished by hand sewing a blanket stitch around the border of image (card stock) using a multi coloured embroidery thread.

Hope you like the simplicity of the image having only used 3 colour combos - I particularly liked this effect, the softness and delicacy of the main image against the multi colours of the background.
