Ranger Easter Egg Decorating Challenge

March 26, 2016 at 3:59 am 1 comment

I decided to join in the fun with Ranger’s Easter Egg Decoraing Challenge http://rangerink.com/easter-egg-decorating-challenge/  .  We could choose any Ranger products we wanted and decorate an Easter egg.  Ranger has so many wonderful products, it was hard to narrow it down, but I ended up using Tim Holtz Distress Paper Mosaic kit for part of the design.  I love mosaics and since I saw this new product I’ve been dying to try it.  The results follow.


I used a craft egg from Michaels.  It’s made out of some kind of material that is easy to paint. Most of the products I used are Tim Holtz. I base coated the egg with Broken China Distress paint and the I used the Picket Fence Distress paint over that.  I rubbed over the surface with Broken China Distress Ink to bring out the crackling more. I painted Idea-ology Heirloom Roses with Pickled Raspberry, Spun Sugar Mustard Seed and Broken China Distress paints.  I painted over the pink, and blue roses with Picked Fence to lighten the colors a little.  I glued the flowers around a small clip art rabbit that I had adhered to the front fo the egg with Distress Collage Glue.   I cut some Idea-ology Salvage Easter stickes into small mosaic pieces and followed instructions on the Distress Paper Mosaic kit to make paper mosaic surface around the rest of the egg.  I painted over the roses with Glossy Accents to make them look more like ceramic roses.

Here are a couple more views.  Thanks for stopping by!
