Eye eye!

 Hello, another weekend is upon us, hope everyone is doing ok, staying indoors, keeping calm and hopefully managing to lose yourselves and forget about what's going on by crafting for a while.
There's a new challenge starting today over at Sweet Stampin', the theme for this week is 'Make Your Own Background'.
I made a couple of tags, these are very large to accommodate the large 'eye' , a beautiful Lavinia stamp called Simmi. The background clouds are sponge using DIs and a stencil. I always enjoy seeing the very different effects from using the same stamps and designs in different colours!
These tags make great bookmarks which is always useful to me as we have a bookmark-eating gremlin living in our house!

Thanks for visiting, why not play along with us this week? Get out those inks, stencils and stamps you love and have a relaxing play! If you need more inspiration, just pop over to Sweet Stampin' to check out the fabulous creations from the team.
Thanks for taking the time to visit

Two striking tags ! Both design are just gorgeous and showcase so beautifully this stamp. Thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at ATSM.

Donna Ellis said...

Well, Chris, I thought I'd left a comment on your intriguing tags last week, but apparently not! I like the contrast between the light and dark on each of these - such a great idea - but what I really like is that the sky reveals the infinite possibilities behind the human heart when it is open to new ideas and possibilities. This are fantastic! Thanks for sharing your project at Lavinia World Challenges >.
