EYES

Bonjour to all my tag friends!

I was undecided this week between two pairs of famous eyes - the Mona Lisa or the 'Afghan Girl', later discovered to be called Sharbat Gula, as photographed by Steve McCurry.  The Mona Lisa won out but I'm not sure why.

I inked the background of the tag with distress ink, using the same Crafters Companion stencil as last week for the Swinging Sixties.  I printed a picture of the Mona Lisa and cut out the eyes which I then covered with two layers of inked paper, torn to reveal the eyes.  Then I added the quote and the embellishment, et voila!

Will be back later to add comments on all your fab tags - have just had a sneaky peek!

Have a great week.
