Week 3 - Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

This week's letter in the Craft Barn challenge is E. For details of the challenge click on the logo on my sidebar.

I think I must have set myself another challenge subconsciously. This is the third week I have used a stamp that's been lurking, unused in the a dark corner in my craft room. It's a Judikins cube that I bought a couple of years ago in a sale (of course!).

I created the face image on my atc from two of the stamps on the cube - it was pure serendipity. I stamped both  images onto a scrap piece of paper to see how they looked and just happened to stamp them close together and liked the result. I used bleached to remove the Distress Ink from the whites of the eyes, the first time I've used this technique.  Have you noticed my creative pun? I've used eyelets!!

Love this Maggie particularly the two side by side images to create one - I was initially trying to work out how you had masked the eye to stamp a pattern around it :) Love the creative pun too lol.
