I Only Have Eyes For You

The wonderful and very talented France is this weeks hostess at Stampotique, and she wants us to bring out the bling!

For the longest time, bling in arting was something I stayed as far away from as I could. I don't know how it happened or when, but I suddenly started to add touches of bling on almost every project. And guess what? I love it!
Now you might still be in that first place I was in, or you might be an avid bling user, but for this week's challenge I would like to see you use some bling! Be it a shiny ink spray, glitters you add or an iridescent paint effect, add some bling to your project!
It will for sure lighten up those days that are getting shorter and darker for us who are getting closer to winter!

I thought maybe the Statue of Liberty could do with a touch of bling, so I've given her a coat of Ferro.
The background is Aqua Tint, that have been sprayed with water. I've used France's stars from Design Cube, this seems to be turning into one of my 'go to' stamps. I've also used France's Cityscape. I've been a grown up crafter this week and did some masking - this is wayyyy too technical for me lol.

I though it could do with a few words so as the lyrics 'Are The Stars Out Tonight' were going around my head 'I Only Have Eyes For You' seemed to be a good starting point. This song is 80 years old! They don't write 'em like this anymore.

Ooops drifted off for an hour or so there listening to some old Northern Soul tunes lol Oh to be young and thin again - and they don't make 'em like that anymore either!

Hope you can join in our blingy challenge, c'mon it'll be fun. 

Thanks very much for looking xx
