PCP 3-D Challenge- Easter Eggs

As Easter is approaching, the kids and I are trying to think of fun ways to decorate the eggs. We started thinking about all the cool supplies that I have tucked away in my stamping stuff that would make some great eggs. So for this weeks Paper Craft Planet 3-D challenge lets decorate eggs!

Here are three samples that I made for this weeks challenge...

My first sample is a plastic egg that I simply added glitter dots and a bow. The polka dots were created with Zot and glitter. Super super simple egg to make. I think it took me longer to clean up all the glitter in my stamp room afterwards, LOL!

This next egg was stamped in Stazon and then colored in with colored pencils. Now the tricky part is getting the stamp image on the curved surface. I stamped the center first and without lifting it at all, I simply rocked my stamp so that all parts of it touch the egg. I would recommend a small stamp for this technique. Next I colored in my egg with colored pencils. Finally I sprayed on some Glimmer Mist, rubbing off the extra.

supplies used:
other: glimmer Mist, pencils

This next egg is a plastic egg that I completely covered in handmade punched flowers. I laid down strips of tacky tape and pressed the flower centers onto the tape. I wasn't sure how the tacky tape would stick to the plastic eggs, but it works like a charm. I added some stickles in the center of the punches.

supplies used:
punch: Target

disclaimer: I don't recommend eating the eggs after using Stazon or Glimmer Mist. I'm not really sure if you could or not, but I knew that this one would be preserved. My mom still has some hardboiled eggs stored away in the Easter decorations that I made when I a kid. The insides have shriveled up and it now sounds like a rattle, but they never smelled.

Great tips on these eggs Wendy - pressing first the stamp on the center and then rolling it - hmm, I must not be doing it right, I'll keep practicing!
