a peeky Easter egg. Kind of like a sugar egg--the kind you peek in?

Honestly, I don't have a better name than "peeky egg"--let's just get on with the photos, shall we?
 A beautiful (and sturdy) Kunze German Scrap butterfly or two, lots of spring flowers, 


some netting and shiny paints, along with an Easter Collage image--

and voila!  A peeky egg!

As in my previous post, this egg is coated with a collage of paper pieces from an Altered Pages Vintage Text collection, and given a coat of shimmery metallic paints.  Altered Pages has some really sweet Easter collages sheets, perfect for your spring art, not to mention lots of luscious German Scrap.

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.



With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 



Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.

# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
