Eyes of Dreams Collection

I'd like to introduce you to Come Hither Eyes from the Eyes of Beauty Collection.  Aren't her eyes amazing???  I LOVE them!

You know how much I love my copics... lol - of course she's colored with them.  Hair - E49 E59 E25 E53; Skin - E11 E00 E000; Eyes- BG15 BG13 BG11 BG10; Wings and clothing - YR09 YR12 YR02 YR01 YR00 BG15 BG13 BG11 BG10.  Her eyes were given some shine using Transparent Gloss Gel and just the tiniest bit of stickles in her barrette.

I've used a number of the dies in the Shapeabilities Sewing Elements set on this card to cut out the pincushion, scissors and buttons.  So that the needles would be silver instead of the color of the pincushion, I first die cut the pincushion with a piece of  Metal Foil Tape Sheet, then I die cut again with the dp which is My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody, and cut off the needles before adhering it to the foil layer.  *All die cuts created using Howdy Doody which is a double sided 6x6 paper pad.

In this photo you can see the SHIMMER and SHINE the Silks Acrylic Glazes create.  Here I've used Nutmeg for both spools.  The small spool has a lighter coat than does the card layers.  I love the richness of this color!  The background paper has a thin coat of Solar Gold Silks brushed across, which you can really see in this view.

The button card is a freebie from the Graphics Fairy and I added the graphic at the top.  Believe it or not, I actually tied on each button to the card before adhering it with glue... what kind of glue you ask? lol

ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever!!!  Seriously.  No joke.  I used it to adhere EVERYTHING on this card.  I absolutely love love love it!!!

Since this is a sewing themed project, I used a spool SVG which I created to cut out the card base.  In a previous post, I offered the smaller spool (which I have baker's twine wrapped around here) but now I am offering a FREE Spool Card which comes in the following formats:  SVG, PNG and PDF.  It includes the card base, the card front and layers.  Download will be at the bottom of this post.  Enjoy!

Card base is Kraft, layers are beige cardstock - first layer edged with Black Soot Distress Ink; top layer painted with Nutmeg Silk Acrylic Glaze and distressed with Black Soot.  My intention for this card was to create the look of wide ribbon on a spool and then build on top of that.  Well... like I said, that was my intention lol!

*International orders may be placed with Elaine at Quixotic Paperie!!!
