OMG - It's Egg-ceptional!

Hi SP Bloggers... well LynnMarie has gone and done it.  Her first Egg-stravaganza creation was a beauty, but her second one has me speechless (and that's no eggs-aggeration!).  Check it out and then leave us your comments at the bottom of this blog post!

Ironworks Supply List & Instructions:  You'll need a wooden egg; Ranger Foil Tape; Embossing Folder; DieCut Machine; Pitch Black Acrylic Paint Dabber; Alcohol Inks (Mountain Rose, Ginger, Meadow; Denim; Lettuce, Butterscotch, Purple Twilight and Sunset Orange); Blending Tool and Felt; Paper Towel. 

Begin by cutting foil tape; place it in the embossing folder and run it through your die cut machine.  Next, cover the foil Tape with Black Dabber paint. Wait a minute then use a paper towel to remove paint. Some paint will remain in crevices to appear as shadows. Repeat.  Then, using your blending tool, apply alcohol inks in these colors: Mountain Rose, Ginger, Meadow and Denim.  Let it dry and then apply a second layer of alcohol inks in these additional colors: Lettuce, Butterscotch, Purple Twilight and Sunset Orange. Let that dry.  Finally cut the foil tape into random shapes and sizes.  Randomly adhere the pieces to the egg, overlapping until the egg is completely covered.
