Inkspirational Challenge #286 Egg-stra Special

 It's time for a new challenge over at Inspirational #286 and it's a fun mood board for spring (spring IS coming right?!)

I was inspired by the pretty blue eggs!  
I cut my eggs using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Bird and Egg Colorize die set.   The little daisies are from the Bunny Games die set also from Tim Holtz/Sizzix.  I made my ship lap background using Shiplap Builder Dies from The Greetery.   The sentiment is from Stamping Bella stamped on a frame die cut with a Simple Stacker Frame die from Penny Black.

I adhered the shiplap strips to my card base using a sheet of Peel N Stick double sided adhesive.  I inked the eggs by rubbing Ranger Distress Oxide Speckled Egg Ink onto my craft mat, spritzing with water and then rubbing a panel of water color paper onto the mat (smooshing!).  Then I die cut the egg layers out of the paper.  The front egg is up on foam dots. 

So check out how the rest of the DT was inspired by the board over at Inkspirational!

You have until April 7th to link up your Mood Board inspired card.  Hope to see you there!

I do love the shiplap background on this card. Such a lovely card.

So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas for our “Anything Goes” challenge.

The shiplap background looks cool, a bit industrial in this color, I like that. And your eggs have an amazing color, very much like the ones on the mood board.

Oh Julia, this is so pretty. The shiplap is a great background and those eggs are wonderful. I wish it was that easy to die real eggs like that.
