Today I'm participating in the Papertrey Ink February Blog Hop. Here is the inspiration photo.
Happily, I received my order from the February release just in time and had the perfect stamps to create with!
I used Egg Stripes along with the Egg Die, cutting out a circle in the egg to make it look like one of those sugar eggs where you peek in and see a scene inside.
Every Easter my sister and I would find one of these wonderful eggs in our Easter Baskets - we would just lap the outside of the eggs to get the sweetness - not wanting to destroy the cute scenes inside!
(the thought of eating that solid sugar egg now makes my teeth ache!)
I put a piece of clear cardstock (acetate) over the inside of the opening on the egg, adhered several rows of die cut green tissue grass onto the acetate with Scor Tape. I stamped the bunny and eggs from A Bit More: Bunny Blessings onto the die cut circle I had left over from cutting it out of the egg figuring out where to stamp so it was just sitting in the grass (not covered by it!). I die cut a scalloped circle and layered it over the opening on the egg. I sponged all the edges with Ranger Distress Tea Die. I adhered the stamped circle to the panel and the egg over the image with foam dots.
Now I'm off to see how this wonderful spring image inspired everyone else!
