The eyes have it!

Had a go at the new challenge on Wednesday Stamper.

I find eyes fascinating and have many many eye stamps in my collection. They say the eyes are the window to the soul. Let us SEE the creative way you incorporate eyes into your stamped pieces.


I don't have any "eye" stamps, so rather than buy something I may not use again I thought I'd use some lovely photos a friend had taken of the boys. Also, I have to admit it's not a card, more a 6x6 layout. I have just put it in a special frame for layouts and it looks lovely. Tom just said, "is that for us?", "why do you say that" I replied, and he said "because you usually give away what you make". Funnily I suppose that is true. Whenever I get chance to do layouts they're usually for a dear friend of mine, if I make a Paper Bag Album thats usually to sell or a commission and if I make a card, it's either for sale or to give someone! So, it's quite nice to keep this piece just for us!





Ingredients: unknown origin frame stamp, Butterfly stamp by All Night Media and Porcelain font, Corel Draw 8 to make pictures black and white.
