Week 236 One Layer

For our 
One Layer Card
This month we have the title 
The Eyes Have it!

So your card this week should have eyes on it somewhere.
Please remember that we LOVE to see WHITE SPACE as part of your design and NO other layers, with minimal embellishments (if any).

Here are our examples to give you a few ideas!

One-eyed monster crazy here!
Using: Lawn Fawn: Monster Mash coloured using 
Zig Clear Brush Pens, with added white dots using a gel pen
and glossy accents to enhance those eyes!

Lots of eyes on this  Stampin Up image, coloured with Copics, some Google eyes added and a doodled border.
I couldn't resist this little kitty when I found him as a freebie over at Opal Manor.  Those eyes just drew me in, it's such a cute image. So I printed him onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock and coloured him in with FlexMarkers.  The sentiment from Mama Elephant was then stamped alongside and that was it, finished.
Here is a little cutie from Mama Elephant.
 I masked off a strip using Post it notes and stamped the little dog within it. I then masked the pup and inked over the strip with ink duster brushes using Distress Inks. I coloured the image with watercolour pencils blending with a water brush. I then added the SU hearts and after removing the Posts its, added the Mama Elephant sentiment.

We are looking forward to seeing your creations and do please try to visit a few of your fellow participants and the DT too... we all love comments!


  1. FAB examples to get us all rolling, sadly, nothing I made yesterday will fit this challenge so I'll have to go "old school" and make one this morning!!!
