Easter Eggs!

Yesterday I started work on Easter Egg ATC's for an upcoming swap.  The styles are all over the place... think I need to find a style and stick with it?! lol!
#1 - Green Eggs & Ham  done with markers, stamps and a cut-out piggie.
#2 - Zenegg done with markers and colored pencils.
#3 - Earth Egg done with the foil tape described in the previous post.  This time I rubbed the black acrylic paint into the crevices and buffed off the extra. The edges are sealed with copper foil tape.
#4 is based on an old Ukranian wax egg and I chose it because it had a goat on it, of course!  It is done with pen and markers
#5 is just a fun little drawing of the easter bunny done in markers and pen.
#6 took some trial and error in it's construction.  It is a faberge egg done with gold and silver leaf pen, copper foil and ephemera.  The top opens to reveal a pull up hen with a key to the front lock.  The front doors open to reveal two lovers.

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and remember, throw paint... not eggs!

  1. Those eggs are all wonderful!!! I love all of them, especially the last Faberge one. How clever is that!! Also love the way you did the metallic one. I see no reason to stick to 1 style. Where's the fun in that? LOL. I'm like you - love to experiment with lots of different techniques and styles.
