The Eyes Have It!

The challenge at Less is More is to make a one layer card
with eyes on it. I saw that and didn't even look at the cards that
were there for inspiration - I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
I've had this monster stamp set for a loooong time but never
used it as it never seemed to stamp a crisp image. BUT today
I received some happy mail - my birthday present from my
husband arrived today - it was the MISTI!!! This card was
perfect for it. I was able to stamp the image more than once
to ensure a crisp image. 
It worked!



I thought I had some googly eyes to use on this but I
can't find them anywhere (I'll probably find them in a day or two)
so I used crystal effects to give the eyes some dimension
and some shine. 
If you look closely (not too closely or you'll see the 
smudge haha) you'll notice little white dots on the monsters
cheeks. Lastly, I used a white jelly roll pen to add them. I love 
how it seems to finish the card off.
