Mini Tutorial – A Quick Shadow:

Now to add depth to the egg, I added more outline to the cracked egg shell and some shadowing.

First I made a palette of ink using my Rose Red ink pad. With the ink pad closed, I gave it a few squeezes. This will transfer a small amount of ink to the lid of your ink pad.

Using a small damp paint brush and the ink on the back of the ink pad lid, I create an outline for the front of the cracked egg shell. Adding a little more water to my brush (very little) I pull the ink from the outline moving upward to create a shadow. This gives the look of a shadow on the inside of the egg.

Then for the final touch, I go over the stamped flowers with a pink Spica Marker for a touch of sparkle. (oh how I love these markers!) 😀

  1. I think it´s your new acrylic paperweight, and I hope the stampset is one of your new 3 step stampset. I would LOVE to win one of those set.
    Thanks for the chance 🙂 /Tina F.

    I would guess some lovely blank cards to use immediately with the stamp set to make great RAKs

    Big Hugs,
