I'm so egg-sited (by Debbie)

Hello. My card is made from the Baroque Eggs stamps and the detail on them is exquisite. If these eggs were in a chocolate shop they would definately be very expensive.




I stamped the eggs with Duo Embellishing Adhesive which I had squeezed out onto a foam pad so I could apply it easily. This glue stays tacky allowing time to rub over gold leaf. I applied three different coloured gold leaves and it picked out the detail of the eggs beautifully. I made the butterflies in the same way and cut them out. The sentiment is from Easter Traditions.

A close up of the eggs really shows the detail of the eggs.



I hope this inspires you.
Debbie

  5. The different colours of the gilded eggs catch the eye beautifully & I love the way you have cut those corners making the eye think (can eyes think?) there is another ovate shape to follow. Definitely egg-siting!

  11. I've never used the gold leaf, but if this is how it turns out, I want to learn how to use it on everything! Absolutely gorgeous!
