It's not what you look at that matters.............

Good morning!

Thought I'd have a go at the Cards In Envy latest challenge of "Keep it Simple" - couldn't be further from the norm for me could it?!!!!!!! - I like messy and complicated!!!!!

OK, so simple it was and of course, simple would generally be a bit of a faster make too so lets see how I got there shall we?:-

Right, here we go, I've got myself a piece of 6 x 6 Sheena Stamping Card and I've used some low tack stencil tape to mark off the area in which I want to work.  To ensure I wasn't "on the wonk" I actually measured down the sides of the card stock so that I could place the tape on perfectly.

I stamped my eye image (Inkylicious) and then just masked the eye off with masking fluid.

Just loved doing this! Then I stamped out all of the tiny peg stamps (Rubber Stamp Tapestry) with Momento dew drop ink pads - I've had these stamps for years and years and actually thought that the company wasn't still active but it is!

I then used an ink duster to add some background colour between those lines of stencil tape and stamped some of the lovely little wooden peg stamps around the eye.

Then rubbed away the masking fluid from the eye.

Stencil tape removed and colour applied to the eye and glossy accents over the top. Stamped the sentiment (also Inkylicious) and I was done!

Matted and layered on to white layers.

Perfect for a woman of any age!

I would like to enter this in to the Cards in Envy challenge - Keep it Simple:-

Thanks for stopping by today, have a great weekend,
