Victorian Easter Egg and Funny Eggs

I had fun making Easter Eggs with my girls the other day. I only ended up getting one done, but you can see their eggs at the bottom of my post.  We used the plastic eggs that you break open and fill with smaller chocolate eggs or Easter goodies.   We brushed them with Decoupage (sealer-glue-finish) and covered them with small pieces of tissue paper, reapplying more Decoupage, as needed.   I help them with the Heat Tool to make sure the egg was completely dry and then we each decorated them.

I chose to make a Victorian egg, using the sweet little angel girl, called Butterfly Kiss by The Stampsmith as the main focal image for my egg.  I stamped her onto to Copic paper and then crinkled the paper all up so that it would more easily form to the egg.   I stamped text onto tissue paper and then decoupaged it on.  The text stamp is called, Art, Life & Beauty by Hero Arts. I distressed the entire egg with Tea Dye Distress ink by Tim Holtz.  I free-handed the pearl flourish along the side, then applied a strip of pretty lace around the entire egg and bronze embellishments at the top and the bottom, finishing with a little polka dot bow at the top.  I used the small Butterfly Kiss stamp, but it also comes in a large version, as well.

Here are the eggs below that my daughter's made.
