I've got my eye on you

Good morning, another Monday and my weekly dose of Visible Image DT inspiration.   Did you see Visible Image on Create and Craft TV on Friday? If not you have missed a treat but you can watch on catch up via this link for the 11am show. The 4pm one is here. The set looked awesome and Mark and Pauline were so relaxed with their brilliant demos. I am so proud to be a part of this amazing team and I loved seeing all my samples on is such a fun feeling

I  smiled to see my camera card on TV, which I shared last Monday. The vintage photo of my brother and I as kids is such Dad took it in 1963...I bet he never realised at the time that one day he would see it on the TV! If you missed that post and my card you can see it here

If you have already watched you will have seen that my eye card opened the 11am show. I chuckled when the  presenter held it up to her face. It is such an amazing stamp, so realistic.
 Today I am going to share details of how I made it. First I stamped and embossed all 3 stamps from the "Go where your dreams take you" set. I then made a cloudy sky using a die cut cloud and distress inks
I covered the eye with masking fluid and added a sun ray using archival ink through my stencil.
I added some star stencilling and also stamped the stars from the Believe in Unicorns set.
I added some green glitter pen and glossy accents to the eye and some Frantage to the card. Below is the wet eye...with glossy accents applied. It's fun watching it dry....from cloudy to clear...
 Once the eye was dry I then had my finished card....
Here it is...
I have my eye on you.........😉
and a couple of close ups. It's really hard to seen the sparkle in the eye from my photo, but if you watch the TV shows on catch up you will see it very clearly.

and here it is once more in its entirety.

This really is the most amazing stamp set. If I had to choose a Top 3 Visible Image stamp set, this would be it. I have owned my eye since it was first released many moons ago and use it so often.
