Steampunk eyes

Having just got the Tinkering with Steampunk Craft studio CD I thought I'd use it to make a card featuring eyes. I combined the eye image with a quote that I found on the internet: 'You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus' an then printed them out on a panel cut from DCWV Mariposa paper featuring a Shakespeare sonnet with a glittered butterfly.  The panel on the left is an offcut of Basic Grey paper stamped again and again with the Judkins face stamp with memento cocoa bean. The panel on the right is from one of the steampunk backgrounds from the CD.


This is for:

Sunday stamper 189: my eyes adored you
Soartful 2: Georgia O'Keeffe inspiration - sepia and dark tones
Desert island 23: monochromatic, no designer paper, sentiment
The craft garden January: monochrome
Catered crop: print (the sonnet doesn't show up too well here, but it is there)
Shelly's terrifically thrilling Thursday: text me
Fab n funky 105: it's all in the eyes, where there is this photo inspiration:
