SUGAR EGG

Hi friends.  Cold and an inch of snow.  What the heck!!  So tired of this weather.

I started this card a few days ago, and finally finished it.

Do you remember those delicate sugar eggs at Easter that had a plastic window
with an Easter scene inside? 

This is an Inkadinkado stamp that is probably 20 years old.
It has been in the draw for probably 15 years.
A few days ago I took it out and sat it on my desk with the
intention to make a card.  So glad I did.  The index on the wood block
is very dark colors and quite unattractive, but it stamps beautifully
and I had such a good time coloring it, glittering it and making a card with it.



My finished card


I colored the egg with Copics.
I used a small paint brush to put white craft glue
on the parts that are sugar, then added a coat of glitter, I used
a white sparkly glitter so the color showed through.
I stamped the stamp again on white card stock and cut out the
part that is the scene and then used that as a pattern to cut a piece of acetate
to look like a window.
The die and flower is Spellbinders.  The greens die is  A Cut Above
Designer paper is a scrap from another Easter long ago.

I am entering this card into the following:


Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day. Until later.............
