Hello Everyone and Welcome Back!
I know Easter has past! However I never get bored dyeing eggs! So, let’s have some fun with the Petal Egg Layering Die set and some dye ink sprays!
For our die cutting you want to use a card stock that can handle a lot of water, so the best choice is either a heavy weight watercolor or Bristol cardstock! I die cut three eggs and used my liquid adhesive to put all my layers together! Set them aside to dry for a while! Before we move on to the next step you want to make sure your layers are perfectly dry!
Grab your spray box and let’s start spraying! I used bright colors and stuck to the primaries, just in case they mixed, we don’t want too much brown on our eggs, right? You can also add a little water from a spra bottle to get those colors moving around.
Once you are done adding your color set these aside to dry, this will take a while…
While they were drying I grab my background panel and used my oxides to create a blended background using a blue and green to give the sense they are outside, ready to be found!
I also got my sentiment ready. I stamped the word Easter and die cut the word hugs.
It’s time to put our card together! I used a 6 in x 6 in card base and arranged my eggs in the center and then added my sentiment on top! To add a little sparkle I used my glitter pen for the hugs sentiment and added drops to the eggs!
Hope you enjoyed today’s project!
Make sure you stay tuned for more wonderful projects coming soon!
