The Eyes Have It for Country View Crafts

Good morning and happy Thursday. I'm back with my second post for this month's Country View Crafts challenge, and this time I've gone back to some of my favourite Dina Wakley stamps.

I think these stamps are so striking -the eyes may not be huge but they are the first thing that I notice.

I made some brusho backgrounds and then just stamped my faces and scribbly script stamp.

The sentiments are part of the same set.

I just matted and layered them, then made them into an accordion card.

Just for once this all came together really well, and just as it had in my head. I love it when a plan comes together!
If you would like to join in, please head off to the challenge blog and show us your eyes!
I'm entering my lovely ladies into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, 'Something Feminine'
Have a very happy week, and thanks so much for looking x


  1. Beautiful piece, The stamps are indeed lovely, I have them, too! have a great day, hugs, Valerie

  2. Great project, Sue. Those stamps look great and I love your Brusho backgrounds...always so much better when there are white bits showing through ;-) Something I sometimes forget!
    Thanks for the inspiration. Cath x

  3. A fab project Sue - awesome Brusho and I adore the sentiment on each.

  4. Looks good, a great motivational make for the girls!

  5. I agree with you about the eyes, they really do draw you in, probably because you created some beautiful backgrounds and the scribble stamp(s) work so well too. Great card Sue! Anne xx

  6. What a beautiful use of these amazing women! The colors and written-word textures and just lovely, Sue! hugs, de

  7. What a cool theme and what fabulous panels on your accordion card. The colours are wonderful, and you're so right about the eyes drawing the attention, especially with the way you've captured the light in their eyes with the white highlights. So clever!

  13. I love your accordion triptych Sue, it's so beautiful!! And as you said, it comes together really well.
    Well, I must confess that love all you do, and in all styles lol :D
    Sorry for missing many of your last posts, you know how I am busy... I had also to fix my broken arm before blogging!
    Have a wonderful day my dear Sue, thanks so much for your continuous support that I really enjoy.
    I would love sharing more my own makes, like you do for so long, it is so kind and enjoyable for all of us, you put very often many smiles on my face, and I have joy to read you. But time is missing so much... I need at least 3 or 4 lifes more, or 80h by day lol! xxx
