The Octopode Factory

Morning all, It's once again time to start a new challenge over at The Octopode Factory, Our new theme is Eyes.Basically we want to see any creations based around that theme. The images do not have to be Octopode if you want to play along but if you do use one of their images your name goes into the prize pool twice.
I have created a tag using Cap'n Jack as the main image and the back ground has been made using the Steampunk'd Flower, Luckily my GF knows how to figure out programs like photoshop and was able to digitally cut around the flower heads and over lay them, I was able to position the eyes where I wanted them and adjust the sizes as required, this really helped other wise it would have been a nightmare time fussy cutting.
Everything has been coloured with Copics and clear embossed. the tag was printed onto craft card and then glued to a tag cut from mount board.
The sentiment was a font found on line and printed onto normal cheep printer paper, this was also clear embossed and as a happy accident the paper turned semi translucent.
 Thanks for stopping by, it would be great to see you joining in over at the Octopode Factory
you have the best part of two weeks to get creative.
