Eyes


Created for the Sunday Postcard Challenge where the theme is eyes. The background was created by sponging the entire card with Lettuce ink, then sponging over the top of this with Oregano ink around the edges. A little Distress ink in Dusty Concord was also sponged randomly near the centre. The whole thing was then stamped over with a linen effect background in Lettuce. Next the eyes were stamped in the centre using Versafine Black. After this, a brick wall stamp was used in the background in Oregano, and a crackle in StazOn Royal Purple. Finally, the text stamp was used 3 times in Black, and the piece edged with Dusty Concord.

Great card - I would have never guessed the linen texture was stamped - I thought your card was on fabric or canvas - very cool! Very striking card!
