OLW 46 Eggs

When I saw that Susan had picked eggs as the feature element for her One Layer Wednesday challenge this week, I knew I would have to think a little outside the box because I don’t own any egg stamps.  I settled on cutting an oval mask so I could sponge or colour my eggs.  My first thought was to cover them in designs which would make them look a bit like Ukrainian easter eggs but in the end I went for the natural look.  I know eggs are not really oval shaped, but I decided it’s close enough.  I sponged the eggs and added the flecks with a marker.


Stamps: Ageless Adornment
Inks: Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke, Tempting Turquoise, Going Gray, Chocolate Chip.

    Your sponging is amazing! Very natural looking. If you hadn’t told us how you did it, I’d think you printed a photo of eggs and just stamped the sentiment.
    Beautifully done!

    So realistic and I think the shape is perfect especially for wild birds eggs which these look like. The sponged shading is brilliant. A great Easter card X

    Love it… and great outside the box thinking. I had considered masking off an oval, too, but in the end was just too lazy, I suppose. Even if I had tried it, I don’t think my eggs would’ve come anywhere close to the beauty of yours. Great job! (Love the speckles on them… they do look so natural.)

    A wonderful and beautiful car you have made. I love the black blossom very much.

    You could almost crack these, they look so real! Love the way you stamped the quote over the last egg.

  18. As always your artistic creativity shines! This card is so elegant and beautiful… stunning. And that sentiment is so thoughtful with the eggs. LOVE this card.
