Giant Embossed Easter Egg by Karen Bearse

Karen Bearse is back on the blog today to share a fabulous Easter Project for you and to give you some inspiration for our current challenge, which you can find all of the details here.

With the Easter Bunny readying his eggs I thought I would get in the act.

This project was surprisingly pretty quick to make. I covered a plastic jumbo egg using
embossed metal foil and acrylic paint. Markers quickly covered the pretty maple leaves, while Glimmer Glam added some shine & shimmer. A touch of metallic copper paint to distress was all that was needed to finish the leaves off. I carefully glued my leaves to the egg using Glossy Accents and some constant pressure. I have to say I was a bit surprised they stuck on so well. Using the beautiful Easter sentiment and various spring colors of embossing powder seemed a good way to make my title. Sadly the egg is not solid chocolate but that means I have a decoration I can pull out next year. I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend!
