LIM week 236 one layer - eyes

 First of all thanks to the Limettes for choosing to showCASe my card for week 234 - what a lovely surprise.
The challenge on Less is More this week is one layer and "the eyes have it". My first card was my first idea, but then I thought I would use the Tim Holtz stamps and make the card below. Only to then think "eyes" there is only one! So back to the original idea of a simple black and white card using a free stamp from a few years ago and a clever cuts stencil with Memento London fog ink stencilled through it.

I did do a little bit of a resist on the second card and then added mermaid lagoon and peeled paint inks with the stamping in Memento Paris Dusk.
