Distress Ink Easter Eggs

Distress Ink Easter Eggs
I had so much fun last year making Sticker Resist Easter Eggs that I thought I’d do it again this year. Yes, my family will be eating scrambled eggs all week but that’s a small price to pay for a holiday tradition. Using a large needle, I poke holes in the egg slowly making the hole larger (Using anything larger may crack the egg) Blow the insides out, rinse and dry. You can tape one hole and pour some thin craft glue inside the egg and let it dry. this will make it a bit more stable in case you drop it- and you will drop it. Lightly sand the egg in case their is any rough patches.
I used Starform Stickers, letters and circles. Applied Distress Inks, Archival inks and Adirondack Spray, heat set between coats, remove stickers (I put the letter stickers back on for the photo) Spray with clear sealer. Added gold dot stickers to the brown egg and white borders stickers to the misted egg.

All the best,

Easter Egg Decorating Ideas using Stamp Ink

I have always been inspired by my sister Cathy’s Easter eggs. She would dye rice and place them on a glue covered egg one piece at a time. Beautiful scenes and little figures placed inside of an egg which had an opening carefully pricked into it.and the side of the egg removed.

My version takes much less time and effort than the eggs my sister did and easy enough for anyone to do.
I took Starform Stickers (some refer to them as border stickers- see Ecstasy Crafts from my list) Place them on an egg, then apply dye inks, remove sticker to reveal masked design, You can place additional stickers on top, ink over it with a different color, You can also place a fresh sticker back on the egg as a final touch (as done with the striped egg) Try spritzing ink in a bottle onto the egg in various colors. You can add a sticker as a finishing touch on this as well. For complete directions check out Ranger Inks Yahoo Group Inkling project.
Have a Glorious Spring!
