The Watcher

Guess it's just one of those "blue weeks" for me....first Mona, and now David have had a little too much of something! This is one of Tim's new stamps, and I think I read he called him "David" someplace....anyone know? This is for Hels, Sunday Stamper Challenge which this week happens to be Men! I used an oldie but a goodie tech, Smackin' Acetate from the TJNL for the background. This is from 2003, so it was long before we had all these fab sprays we all use now, kinda looks the same tho, doesn't it! I edged this in one of the new Distress Ink colors, Rusty Hinge. In Tim's new book, "A Compendium of Curiosities", I followed the instructions for his Tinted Vision Fragments on the eye. Really gives it a cool effect, almost looks like a monacle. (Ok, I'm a little challenged here, can't find this word in my dictionary, spell check hates it, but when I googled it, it's used in various forms. It's an old eye piece thingie like Colonel Mustard and Monopoly Man use. OMG, Hels is rubbin' off on me!)I used Distress Stickles on his RED lips and curls, and on that wicked looking bee or wasp in the top right corner. There is nothing better than creating a piece that really makes one happy.....but then again, my skin color appears to be the same blue this week...."thunk" maybe we all drank the same stuff?!! hugz

I love all the funk of this piece too! The mononcle, the colouring, the David stamp - all combined beautifully. Fabulous.

OK...Gerrie,
LOVE the art as usual, but I am not sure how I feel about that stamp. I have seen it in some very creative pieces. But, "David" just creeps me out...kind of in a "scary clown" kind of way!! You have done an amazing job with "it". Hugs, Rockin Robin Caldwell

Nice tag. Your techniques turned out well. Look what I found:

A monocle is a type of corrective lens used to correct the vision in only one eye.--Wikipedia
