Magic Eye

 International Art & Soul, a challenge which has been put together to incorporate any type of craft, paper, wood, flowers, recycling, glass - the world is your oyster :).  Come on over an join us with you artwork :)

Challenge #32
(add a spinner, wobble, make a waterfall card etc)

This fortnights challenge them has been chosen by DT sister CraftyGirl.  We all have fun with interactive cards, not only are they fun to make they are an interesting creation to give to the lucky recipient.  I decided to do something totally different and opted for a Magic Eye card.  Hubby has a program on his computer for making Magic Eye images so I set him to work and he came up with the image hidden below lol.

Magic Eye technique - Hold the centre of the printed image right up to your nose. It should be blurry. Focus as though you are looking through the image into the distance. Very slowly move the image away from your face until the 3 dimensional image appears.  I have done these for years so don't tend to bother with the hold near my nose these days.  I just have the image at arms length and stare lol.  Hope you can do this one, I promise it is not just a pattern, there really is an image hidden :)

A fun and different card to make but very quick lol so I decided to decorate the inside of the card and an envelope too (the inside is the same as the envelope with a simple layered border).  

Challenges entered:-
The image in the magic eye is of a speed boat and the sentiment Happy Birthday along the top of the card :) :) :) 


  1. A great idea, Jane, I used to love these pictures when I was younger. Unfortunately now I can't see the hidden image. :( Hazel x

  2. Hazel don't feel bad I can not see it either. Lovely card Jane!!''


  3. I got the image fairly quickly but longer for the sentiment to hit me in the face. What a lot of fun Jane. Fabulous! Hugs Christine xx

  4. Ok now that my eyes have stopped tearing I can write my comment. LOL. I love the idea of your card and I loved them too when I was a child but bifocals and many years later I just cant get it. I might keep trying after I post this comment. Thanks so much for sharing over at Aud Sentiments.
