Weekly Smeared Ink DT Project and Junk Funk March Challenge

For this week I have chosen to combine my Weekly Smeared Ink Design Team Project, in which I have only used Smeared Ink stamps, with a monthly challenge on the Smeared and Smudged Forum.

I have altered a tin can to make what I like to call my "Eye Can Can".  
The Junk Funk Challenge is to use lids, any kind of lids.
My lids are bottle caps.

Eye Catching Deets

Eyes are from a digital stamp from the set Monster Hearts found in the Smeared Ink shop.
I cropped the image to get only the eyes, then printed.
Each is colored in with markers and punched out with 1 1/4", 1", 1/2" circle punches.

Clear stones were purchased at Walmart and hot glued on.

Finished eyes were placed in bottle caps and Crystal Effects over each.

Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks used on base of tin can.

Large Pearl Jewels for white eyes.  

On the smallest caps, I hand drew eyes with black Sharpie.  
Black Sharpie also used for eye centers on Pearl Jewels.

I did use hot glue in some open areas to help give texture.
All materials used are current Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
