Happy Easter~

I managed to spend a few hours actually making something in my studio yesterday. Easter is the time of miracles don't ya know *wink* I created two one of a kind Easter eggs for my two grand kids...
 I had two cardboard egg shaped containers previously filled with See's candy that I covered with some embossed metal tape to create the two eggs. For my grand daughter I used a fancy embossing folder to create her egg. For my grand son's egg I used a pattern wheel to create the look of rivets on the metal tape to make it look like it was made of riveted metal. Lastly, I added pink and black acrylic paint to bring out the detail of each egg.

 Surprisingly the two eggs hold quite a bit of candy---
as I was going to eat the left overs but they all fit. Nuts.
big hugs,
