JFF - Week 18 - Eye Spy


A bit ago I had a play around with a glue gun and created some patterns.  When cooled, I coloured the glue with rub n buff.  I used the one on the left to make the hanging below.


I stamped an eye into friendly plastic pellets and once cooled, coloured it with spanish copper and jade rub n buff.  I added a large green gem for the inner of the eye.  I mounted it on the glue.  I stamped 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' from the creative expressions spirit plate in peeled paint distress embossing powder onto the black card.  I then layered it onto green card and added a piece of organza ribbon to hang.

Check out the JFF challenge blog as there is a different challenge set every Thursday.
