CASology - Egg, and a little bit more...


The cue word for the CASology challenge this week is egg.  I searched, but didn't have a stamp that was appropriate for this challenge...what to do?  Start working on an egg card with my Cameo... 


Here's what I ended up with...


I don't normally send cards for Easter, so I thought I might be able to use this for my granddaughter's birthday that's coming up in a couple of weeks.

I cut the egg shape with the Cameo making the card base.  I cut a piece of card stock in green to cover the front of the card.  The broken egg and the chick were also cut with the Cameo.  I colored the chick with Copics and cut under his wings so that he could hang over the edge of the broken egg.  The "one cute chick" was computer generated.  I added some silver pearl drops, googly eyes on the chick, and a little silver highlighting.  The "U R" was cut with dies from MFT.  I also added a little Wink of Stella.

Here's a few more cards I've made for the widow's group...

                      
    

I did a lot of ink blending and water coloring for the backgrounds.  The first two cards are water color backgrounds and the last two cards are ink blending with distress inks.

As always, if you have any questions about how I did something, just send me an email and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit!  Hope you'll come back soon!  Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...
