Use It! with Lucy's Cards - Class 2: Lesson 4 (Wiggle Eyes)

It's Day 4 of my Use It! class 2.
My supplies for this week are:

Lesson 4 - Wiggle Eyes

Have you noticed my unhealthy addiction to wiggle eyes? I love them. Whenever my hubby buys me a card, he always finds me a wiggle eyed one. He agrees… a card just isn't fun unless it is adorned with some fun shaky eyes. :)

Stamp a circle of Lemon Yellow ink on white cardstock.
Stamp an outline circle on top of the yellow circle with Black Ink.
Cut out the circle. 
You could just stamp on yellow card, but I lurrrrrve this Lemon Yellow ink colour and had to use it. :)
Using a Post-It note as a mask, stamp half a tiny outline circle onto the yellow circle. 
Adhere two eyes above the half circle. I always use tiny glue dots for wiggle eyes.
Then, add a drop of Glossy Accents beneath one eye to create a tear drop.
TIP: lean the face against something while the Glossy Accents dries, so that it forms a drip shape rather than drying into a circle.
Stamp the sentiment in black ink onto a white card base.
Adhere the face above the sentiment using foam adhesive.
