Cracked Egg with Bouquet

Hello every one! Hope you are enjoying the weekend. Here is a card that I made using a lovely stamp from Purple Onion Designs.


This image is called Cracked Egg - Bouquet and there is a special on all three of the Cracked Egg images. It's only $8.50 if you purchase all three of the Cracked Egg stamps! What an awesome deal! They are just perfect for Spring and Easter projects. Go check them out here!


My Cracked Egg is stamped on a piece of Strathmore bristol paper and colored with Prismacolor colored pencil and blended with baby oil using paper stumps. I am still trying to get familiar with the colors and I still have tons of room for improvement.


After coloring the image, I stamped the sentiment (with the help of Mr. Stamp-A-Ma-Jig) on the lower right corner and penciled a border before tracing it with a Sakura Micron pen. Hope my doodled frame didn't destroy the whole thing... =) The sentiment comes with this stamp.

That's all I have for now. For more inspirations using stamps from Purple Onion Designs, please visit Purple Onion Designs Blog.



Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!
