Eyes Tested


Hi everyone hope you are all well its time to play over at SanDee &Amelie's
Steampunk challenge,


This months the theme is eye's tested although you would need your
eye's tested if you think you will be able to see 
through my glasses!!


The base is a pair of my son's sunglasses that I covered over with my
home made leather.


Various clock and compasses were stamped on distress coloured card 
& used for each lens then cogs and wings 
attached.


I Attached a glass fuse across the nose with wire.


Die cut card and coloured it so that it looked like the patina from rust.


It is amazing what you can create when you put your mind to it I nearly gave
up with this but my husband and son wouldn't let me.


I am glad I didn't please let me know what you think?
