'Eggs' traordinary Blog Hop'

The challenge was to decorate an egg - these eggs are not mine -
 I was given them as a present from Poland a couple of years ago.
 They are beautifully decorated though -
 and how on earth did they do that lacy one with all the holes?

It was bad enough to just blow the eggs that I decorated!

This challenge also required a stamped image -
 so I printed some Smeared Ink digis (small), cut them out, and attached them to my eggs.

Here are three finished eggs:


Digi is 'Octopus word'. This was coloured with Promarkers and then sprayed with Distress Reinker Misters in blue and green. Finally a coat of Crystal effects was added. Ribbon, button and beads to hang.
'It's about Time Hourglass' digi - I thought this was sort of appropriate as an 'eggtimer'! This was covered with Distress Crackle paint and then covered with spritzed 'worn lipstick' Distress ink. Ribbon and beads to hang.
'Hallokitty' digi. The whole egg was coloured using an acrylic paint dabber (copper). Ribbon, button and beads to hang.

This is the hop order:
