eclectic Paperie challenge and E-Team blog hop

Egg cartons, Tim Holtz distress inks and stains and die cuts: That’s the challenge for the eclectic Paperie E-Team blog hop.

My piece has an egg carton base and egg carton bird, which I think are kind of cool, but if you want to see some unbelievably awesome egg carton art make sure you hop along with the E-Team!

The bird is colored with Distress Ink in tea stain and fired brick, and the red is covered in fired brick Distress Stickles. The cage is alcohol-ink coated aluminum with glass beads danging below and is hanging from craft wire that is tucked into the carton base.

The base is colored with dribbles of Distress Ink reinker, which thanks to my incredible imagination, reminds me of a lovely antique cast iron cage stand that has chipped white enamel paint flaking away.

And, ahm, I guess I don’t have anything else to say. Can you imagine? Me either. I must be catching a bug …

  1. What a great idea to use as a base for this particular project. You used all the materials so well together. And the base is a very pretty element to your project.
