I Only Have Eyes

by Julie Warner -The Write Stuff

Happy Friday! The weekend is almost here! Here's a fun little card I was tempted to name "Cousin It and the Eyeballs". That funny little goblin looks like Cousin It to me. I combined a few images to create my little scene and to complete the background, I drew in the floor, walls and little portrait on the wall.

For the bowl of eyes, I stamped the bowl only of G1131 Popcorn Bowl onto acetate, colored the back with Sharpies and cut it out. I used markers on the eyes C062 Eyeball and stamped them on white c/s then used a 1 inch circle punch to punch them out.

The table only from K1150 Cutie Pie Merry Elf was stamped on white c/s and colored with Prismacolor pencils. I used a ruler to create the floor and walls and used the Prisma pencils on them, as well. I stamped the hat only from G077 Fancy Pumpkin , masked it and stamped the D268 goblin below it.

The sentiment D092 was added, a yellow layer, then I drew a tile border using a ruler and Prisma pencils. Just for fun, I added some googlie eyes to the goblin. Couldn't you just see this little guy with his bowl of eyeballs, answering the door on Halloween. Won't the kiddies be surprised when he only has eyes, lol. Trick or Treat!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

p.s. Vicki convinced me. I'm adding it to her Saturday Spotlight challenge # SSHP03
