Smeared and Smudged April Member Blog Hop


I was a little nervous to use a stamped image on an egg. I wanted to do something more cutesy for Easter. So I picked an UM Repeat Impressions stamp entitled Just Hatched I bought a few years ago from StampScrapArttour convention.( Unfortunately I will miss the one they are having near me in May. I am having surgery to repair my separated stomach muscles. I will be in bed for one week afterwards and two more weeks extremely light activity.)
I stamped the image on white card stock then colored it with Copic markers. I cut it out so it would look like it is cracking out of the egg. I colored the egg with Copic markers too in two shades of purple. After adhering the stamped image to the hard boiled egg I drew some black on it with a Sharpie marker. I think it looks so cute.
I am hoping to dye eggs this Sunday afternoon with my girls. We love coloring them, using dye, stickers, markers and crayons. So much fun! Egg salad sandwiches and hard boiled eggs eaten for days, even the dogs get some.
I hope you enjoy the Smeared & Smudged blog hop. I appreciate you taking the time to check out my egg and leaving a comment. I hope everyone has a sweet Easter with baskets full of joy!

awesome egg Paulette...I love how smooth your design looks. It is not easy to work on an object that does not have a flat surface and is breakable. Your egg is eggstraspecial!!!
