An Egg-stra Special Card!

Last Thursday on the Hero Arts blog, the Hero Hostesses from our Flickr group did an egg-cellent job inspiring us with egg shaped cards! I just had to try one myself:

It was extremely difficult to photograph this card, so I scanned it. It still doesn't capture it very well, but it seems the best I can do for this one! I used the template found HERE to create my egg-shaped card. I began by stamping the Antique Flower Background stamp in Versamark, and then rubbed it with chalks in various pastel colors. Next I went around the edges with my new Broken China Distress Ink - but it was so pretty I ended up rubbing it farther into the center of the card than I originally intended! I want to thank Simon Says Stamp! for that Distress Ink - I won a giveaway they had on Facebook a few weeks back - YAY! What a generous company! The final inking of the edges is in Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I also spritzed the entire thing with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist, this close-up kinda sorta shows you the shimmer it has IRL:

The egg card was super fun to make - big thanks to Jill, Arlene, Vera, Suzz, Sue & Linda for the wonderful inspiration! Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Gorgeous colors on your egg! I can imagine the fantastic shimmer from the misting with glimmer. Lovely egg!
