The Craft Barn's fortnightly Alpha Challenge has reached letter U. Not the easiest letter to illustrate - I have to admit, this one nearly defeated me...but not quite!. I considered "Umbrella", and "Unicorn" before settling on "Udjat"
The udjat is an Egyptian amulet, also known as the "Eye of Horus". The right eye - which this stamp by Clarity shows - represents the sun (the left eye is the moon). I stamped it onto some scrap Centura pearl card (the reverse side) embossed it in gold WOW powder and then dug out my Sakura Gelly Roll pens to add colour . I blended DI's (Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade) over the background card, put some silicon glue onto the eye and stuck it on. Then all that remained was to add the definition, and the job was done!
Thanks for visiting....
