Russian Floral (by Asha)

Hello, everyone. Now that the Easter celebrations are over, I hope you are able to find some time for a spot of therapeutic crafting.  And to inspire you here's a project featuring the new Russian Floral Egg.


Here's what you do:

  1. Stamp the Russian Floral Egg onto a piece of blue cardstock using Versamark.
  2. Apply WOW Gold Rich EP and heat set.
  3. Colour the egg with coloured pencils. Fill in the open spaces, add shading around the embossed areas for a sense of dimension.
  4. Apply a dusting of Distress Inks around the card to achieve a "velvety" effect. I used Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserves
  5. Finally, frame the egg by stamping the four corners of the cardstock with a stamp from Breath of Spring and VersaFine Imperial Purple. Embellish the egg with bling or pearls.

Five easy steps but, oh, quite impressive, don't you think? Go on, give it a go. There are 2 egg designs to choose from. You could start your very own collection of Faberge inspired eggs. 

As always, I have more pics and details on my blog. And please swing by often for more project ideas from the rest of the team. Have a lovely day, everyone!

Beijinhos,
Asha

  3. That intense blue with the more purple shade within the egg works beautifully Asha, and the gold embossing really stands out, also the corners frame it perfectly. x
