Decorated Eggs

Good morning!  
I have always loved looking at all the different coloured Easter eggs that appear around Easter time.  So this year I decided to have a go myself.

*** These eggs are for decoration purpose only ***

First of all your need to 'blow' the yoke and egg white out of the egg!  
Next I filled a old plastic food package with water and dropped in some different coloured {Kurecolor Ink}.

I then gently placed my egg in the water and rolled it around, allowing the ink to cling to the egg.  You need to be fairy quick when doing this but at the same time being careful with the egg!!

I then left the eggs to dry before I started to decorate them with more solid images using the {Zig Painty Pens} and the gorgeous {Zig Wink of Stella Brush Pens}

So now I have my own decorated eggs for decorating this year.

Thanks for stopping by

Easter Friends with Art & Graphic Pens

Hello there!  Not long till Easter and if like me you enjoy sending cards then you are probably starting to make them.

Here is a card made using the {Zig Art and Graphic} pens. These pens give great effects when you add water to them.  After stamping the image in black and embossing it with clear embossing powder I scribbled the brown pen on to a non porous surface.  Here I am using a glass mat.  Next I picked up some of the colour using the {Zig Waterbrush}

Colour in each of the bears applying more colour where you require shading until you have coloured everything in.  Mat the finished picture on to cardstock when dry.

The {Zig Art & Graphic} pens can create a mottled background too.  For this you need to colour a mixture of pens on to the glass mat then spritz it with some water.  Then gently lay your cardstock on top and the colour will transfer to it.  You will need to leave it to dry before you glue anything to it.

When it is dry then you can add some patterned paper and the topper and your card is finished.

Thank you for stopping by today
