Glasses of Sight

Good day traveller. Welcome to the Guild Hall. Today I was visited by the village smith who modified my Pink Glasses of Sight with +43 detection points, which will make it easier to detect foes using the stealth ability. If there is one piece of equipment I love, it is my spectacles. In fact, one of my favourite things is inanimate objects or cute things wearing glasses.
I began by colouring the little goth girl from Meljen's Desgins with my Prismacolors. Then I decided she needed glasses because, in my opinion, everything is about ten times cuter when clad in glasses. I used the Lawn Fawn "Clear to See" set and just masked the arms of the glasses and stamped the frames onto the girl. I decided to run with the whole glasses theme and cut out some glasses from the Nifty Fifties cartridge. I stamped the sentiment from a cheap Imaginisce stamp. I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut out the "sun" shape and the diamond border shape. I embossed the white diamond shape, the white "blob" shape the girl is on, and the purple background with the Cuttlebug. 
The inside I made a "background" paper using the different glasses stamps from the Lawn Fawn "Clear to See" set. The UBER CUTE milk stamp is another cheap Imaginisce stamp. The inside sentiment I created using Lawn Fawn's "Jessie's ABCs". 
Stamped some more glasses on the envelope to make it all matchy matchy.

I will be entering this glasses-laden card into the following challenges:
Meljen's Designs Challenge #128: Just Because
Creative Card Crew Challenge #20: Purple
Lawnscaping Challenge #43: Texture

I look forward to testing my Pink Glasses of Sight in battle. So far I've only used them to see what's in cupboards and drawers before opening them. Sure cuts down on the time it takes to look for things.

Geek is definitely quite chic and making a comeback! Love the glasses on the goth girl and the background. Now if I could just find someone to modify my glasses of sight so they had -43 stealth and I could find them when I lay them somewhere...

Thank you for joining us this week at Meljen’s Designs for our Just Because challenge!
