UK Stampers Easter Tag Competition

There is a new competition on the UK Stampers forum here. Sid has given us a free choice of theme but the tag has to have an egg on it. There are several fab entries but I decided to go in a different direction and use real eggshells as a mosaic background. I washed some shells and soaked them in vinegar to remove any smell. After rinsing I pulled the inner membrane out. The shells were stuck onto an Impress spring green base with mod podge and given a coat of mod podge on top to seal. When dry I dropped lettuce, sailboat blue and raspberry alcohol inks over and spread them with some blending solution. The base tag was coloured with Impress lemon yellow and stamped with a border stamp in Versafine majestic blue. The face stamp is by Tin Can Mail stamped in majestic blue. The 3D butterflies and banners are Sizzix dies and the branches are a Memory Box die. The closing date of the competition is 31st March so you still have time to enter.


  1. Fab tag Rukhshana, great idea to use the shells themselves !! Good Luck !

  2. What a great take on the theme, Rukhshana. And a beauty too.

  3. Love the vibrant colours on your tag, a very clever take on the egg theme it looks fantastic with the coloured egg shell background.
