Open Your Eyes

Art is all around us, you just need to
open your eyes.
The backgrounds were created with Adirondak Alcohol inks on glossy cardstock. I then stamped the images
in Jet Black Stazon. Stamps and inks are all available from
The white highlights were made with a scratch tool, but a craft blade would work too.
The layers were wrapped in gold thread before matting. Stamps used include: TimeCollage 1611-SO, Maker of Dreams 1729-SO,
Find your Path 1645-SO &
Womans Face 189-01 RN
