As sure as eggs is eggs


that's the theme for this weeks Wednesday Stamper, eggs!! Cracking!! I don't have any egg stamps (ah poor me!!) but I do have some nice new bird stamps. So I decided to use those and make a background with an egg shaped mask and distress ink, and a paperartsy script background. Have you tried hand drawing an egg shape. how difficult is that?!!? it was about twice the size when it started but all the trimming and neatening kind of shrunk it.
anyway it's not the greatest thing I've ever made,it looked a lot better in my head- but then things usually do (I look like Jennifer Aniston in my head, lol). I am pleased that I did at least manage to make something and rise to the wednesday stamper challenge.

  16. I agreed with your comments on Jo C-S's site, and now agree that it's hard to interpret what's in your head onto paper. Lovely job, though!
