While I was brainstorming trying to decide on a 3D project for Stampendous BlogStars, I was talking to my boys about Easter and they were asking when we would dye our Easter eggs. Ah-ha! There was a perfect 3D project for me to try!
I first hard-boiled my eggs and let them cool (maybe a little too cool - more on that later). I stamped small images from the Stampendous Luv Bunnies and Flower Cross stamp sets with VersaMark ink and then used Detail White Embossing Powder. Then used my heat gun to melt the powder - I had no idea how long it would take to melt the embossing powder when it's sprinkled on a cold egg! I didn't think it would ever melt! (Note to self: bring eggs to room temperature next time!) I then dyed the eggs using McCormick Food Coloring, and used paper towels to wipe the dye off of the embossed areas.
I hope you'll want to give this project a try while you and your family are preparing for Easter. I'm working on another project for Easter that I hope to be able to show you soon.
Hope you'll take time to get inky today!
