Decorating an Egg

DSCF3678-1

I don't mean in the usual way!  Sharon's No Time to Stamp challenge today was to use an egg in your creation!  I have my stamp club girls meeting tonight, so I wanted to do something QUICK this morning!  I bought these Dollar Store eggs last year:

They sit on my piano with my little vintage bunny and my mom's Easter tree.  I thought they could use a little  "dressing up", so used some of my little clear Easter stamps (thanks again, Georgette!) and some Michael's ribbon and made some very simple decorations for them:

It's a dreary day and it was hard to get the lighting quite right--the colors look a little washed out, so here is a photo from my desk:

The ribbons are attached with a mini glue dot and the images themselves with a dimensional.  Very easily removed to change for next year!  TFL and have a great day!

  • Stamps:  Studio G Easter stamps
  • Paper:  WW, Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst
  • Ink:  Palette Noir, Versachalk
  • Acc:  Markers, Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Circle Punch, ribbon from Michaels, Dimensionals, mini glue dots

So cute! I didn't even pull out my Easter decorations this year! I am so far behind it's not even funny!

You dressed those eggs up so cute! Love your little cat pic too! They seem to find the funniest spots to take a nap or hang out in!
