It's all about the Eyes ATC

This is my first art project for the year 2009. I'm quite pleased with the final piece. I created this ATC for a swap I'm in for eyes. I say final piece because I've tried numerous versions of this and some coloring schemes. This was my favorite. I played on the word "eye". See if you can spot all three "eyes" I used. I'll give you the answer at the bottom of this post.


I used five different stamps to create this collaged image. The face stamp is by Queens Ink, the feather and the swirls are by Judikins, the two clear circle stamps are by Inkadinkado. As you can see, I only used a portions of the stamps. This is an ATC afterall, and the whole stamps just don't fit! I colored it with green and blue. Heavy handed in some areas and lighter in others.


I've been experimenting with doing collages and I really like how this turned out. What do you think. Too busy or hopefully just right?

O.k, did you figure out how many eyes there are? First, there is the girl's eyes, then there is the eye of the peacock, and finally the bullseye. Did you get them all? Perhaps you found an eye that I had not thought of. If so, let me know.

Stunning collage!

Excellent work. My first thought, of course, is whether it is AVAILABLE or TRADED. LOL
