I've Got My Eye On You...
An eye for an eye, ICU, an eyeful...Who knows? As you may have gathered by simply having a butcher's (butcher's = butcher's hook = a look in English slang) that this is yet another card born out of no good rhyme nor reason. It just sort of created itself....as they do. I have no idea what a card of this nature would be best suited for. Maybe it would be a good one for an optometrist, a magician, casino security, Peep Show patrons (eww), and Big Brother even. Not so good though for those with paranoid ideations I would imagine. And yes, I have resisted all temptation to start in with the one eyed and no eyed deer jokes, you'll be pleased to know.
I do know though, that this weird and slightly wonderful one was created largely with Tim Holtz's Stampers Anonymous Cling stamps. From memory, it looks as though the collage-like background was created with smatterings from the Oddities, Splatters, Going Somewhere, Steampunk and Slight Alterations sets. The tag's stampings (as I am hesitant to actually call it a sentiment) is from Papertrey Ink's Just The Ticket stamp set. I do enjoy a collage stamped background I must say and even though I have no idea where I was going with this card, I enjoyed this one too. Ooh, and lastly, the flower is also a Tim Holtz goodie created from his Tattered Florals Alterations die with one random red and gold swirled die cut from...Lord only knows where, placed in the rear for good measure. The gray top portion of the flower is actually handmade paper using wool. Cool, huh?
Well, that's me done for today. Thank you ever so much for stopping by. Eye really adore when you do. ;-)
