It's Easter Egg Time!

So here is what I've been working on! It's an Easter basket made out of acrylic tags from Sparkle n Sprinkle, and glittered eggs.

I took four tags and stamped on the acrylic with Black Stazon and colored them with Galaxy Markers. Then I coated the back with Versa mark and embossed the back with 2 different embossing powders. I made a 2,4,6,8, box (with a little different measurements) and glued the tags to the box. Then I used glue and double sided sticky tape to ad the glitter to the sides of the basket. Added buttons to cover the holes in the tags, and there you have a basket.

The eggs are just covered in glue and glitter and decorated with a prima flower and rhinestone. I used my anywhere hole punch to punch holes in the bottoms of the eggs and stuck a sucker stick inside and hot glued it, this allowed me to stick the eggs securely in the basket.

Here is a list of the embossing powders and glitters that I used (all from Sparkle n Sprinkle): Cosmic Dreams Pineapple EP122, Ebb Tide EP361, Aqua Marine G1062, Eggplant G1066, Starry Night G1048, Dazzling Rose G1085, Sunny Daze G1038

I will be doing a class on this early next month, so keep your eyes open for the details.

Today is my daughter's birthday she is 14! I can't believe how fast they grow up. We are taking her to a Japanese restaurant tonight for dinner.

Have a great day and God bless!
