CCC3 - AN EGGSELLENT CHALLENGE
This is my egg for the crafty critter challenge. The challenge was to color egg with craft items. I did my favorite technique -embossing. The egg was stamped with the flower from baroque motifs with a versamark pad emobossed with white powder and sponged with brocade blue ink. It needed a little bling so i added little rhinestones to the middle of each flower. Two things to remember when embossing an egg. 1)It takes much longer to emboss (must not absorb or something like paper) 2)the egg gets stinken hot! It is also hard to hold the egg and emboss and i think I might have 2nd degree burns on one of my fingers. So be careful when you emboss on eggs. Otherwise I am pleased with the results. I may have to use SU ink next year on my eggs and skip buying a egg coloring kit.
