Secrets of the Heart...












This weeks Wednesday Stamper is 'The Eyes Have It'. Here is my contribution, using a Paper Artsy stamp as the main image. The words say " The face is the mirror of the mind, and the eyes, without speaking, confess the secrets of the heart".

**Edit...(for Carrie)...the background is a combination of sprays, blending direct inkpad application and water. Quick and easy...my kind of technique :0)
