Today is a new Your Next Stamp challenge...
~ Texture ~
My little Easter Egg Box has lots of texture going on. I created two layers with two different shades of green felt for the grass. The top layer of grass is popped up with foam tape for dimension and so that it appears that Mini Bunny Fhiona is actually in the grass. She was colored with Copics and is also popped up with foam tape. The Easter egg is part of the Fluffy Chick with Egg set that was just released in March. I first colored it with Copics, then applied a thin layer of liquid glue; just as the glue started to become tacky I sprinkled it with ultra fine crystal clear glitter and rubbed it in. It has a beautiful sparkle to it in real life. However, now looking at it, I wish I had colored my Easter Egg a tad bit darker. You can still see that I added shading to the egg, but the colors lost a bit of their vibrancy with the application of the glue.
The template for the Easter Egg Box was found HERE. As I tend to do with most templates I use, I altered the size. I know that I wrote my alteration measurements down somewhere, but now I can't seem to find it. Plus my measurements were also in inches and centimeters - if that helps anyone. (I'll update this post when I do, but it's late right now and I'm not going to go digging around looking for it.) It was a very simple project that went together really quick. I think I'll make another one and put the kids names on the other side of the box. When we dye Easter eggs, then they can put on display one of their special or favorite colored eggs.
Here's a view with the egg removed. I used a Blossom Spellbinder die for my insert box. Not only did it make it a little more decorative, but the scallops "held" different sized plastic eggs which made it a little more versatile.
I hope you will join us at YNS and create something with a little texture. And you don't have to use a Your Next Stamp image to play along, but we love it when you do. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
If you have the time, please stop back by my blog later this morning when I'll have my 7 Kids College Fund sample to show.
