Hello again! We have another wonderful fortnightly challenge over at The Ribbon Reel and I am your host this week and I've chosen this beautiful Spring inspiration photo and ask that you create a card / project inspired by the COLOURS in the photo PLUS an EASTER / SPRING THEME!
I wanted to do something a little different this time, so decided I'd use a cardboard egg box to decorate up - with a little surprise inside!
I started by painting with Aqua paint, then toned the colour down with a white paint dabber. I then flicked with Tattered Angels shimmer mist (in Crushed Shell) to recreate a speckled egg.
Then for the fun part - decorating up with ribbons, trim, feathers, flowers, eggs and I couldn't resist using a mini cotton spool which I wrapped with ribbon.
The inside of the egg has been Decopatched - covering with adhesive then with ripped up pages of an old book and then another layer of adhesive to seal. I've filled the inside with this little birdie, nest and branches and a stamped greeting onto ribbon.
