Waltham Egg card

Happy Saturday!

Today I’m playing along in the Color Throwdown challenge which has a fabulous palette of pink, lime green and grey.

When I saw the inspiration photo, I really wanted to play with my Kitsch Flamingo distress ink, which I felt would be perfect, especially as I haven’t used the colour very much as I tend to gravitate towards the pastels. However, I also had an idea for the Waltham Egg by Memory Box and went with it. I decided to colour the foliage on the egg with my Twinkling H2Os rather than the distress ink so Kitsch Flamingo stayed in my drawer.. again! I did use Hickory Smoke for the egg background.

Anyway, after assembling the egg, I adhered it to a panel that I’d embossed using Simon Says Stamps’ Splendid Leaves embossing folder and added a few white branches cut with the Memory Box viburnum branches. The sentiment is by Sugar Pea Designs.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. So pretty, Lucie! This reminds me of the delicately painted eggs that my Mom used to make every Easter! Thanks so much for joining us at the Color Throwdown this week, and thanks for bringing back beautiful memories!!!
