The Eyes...

Good morning all.

Well all the fruit has been dealt with...I think I'm all strawberried out for this year! The eyes last night were on the skies...the boys went off up the hills with their mates to get the best view. We had a good view of the space station from the back garden and I did see a little activity before my neck cricked!

I haven't played over at Less is More regularly for a while now with holidays and such but when I saw this weeks prompt I knew I had some NBUS stamps in my collection which were perfect.

This is a JOFY stamp from Paper Artsy, inked with versamark and heat embossed with white EP. I used a Spellbinders die to create a mask and using twisted citron, peacock feathers and mermaid lagoon DI's inked over the image...a quick dust and polish and Bob's your Uncle!

Challenges entered:
Less is More - the eyes have it
Happy Little Stampers CAS - masking
Addicted to Stamps - make your mark
Sweet Stamps - anything goes
Sweet Stampin - anything but birthday
