Smudgy Antics Weekly Challenge - EGGstatic

It's time for another awesome challenge over at Smudgy Antics!

This week's theme is EGGstatic and we were challenged to decorate an egg.  Be sure to check out the Smudgy Antics blog to see what the DT gals have come up with.  For those too intimidated to decorate an egg, projects with eggs or egg shapes are also being accepted.

Here is my take on the challenge:

Yep, I made a mummy egg!  

I used eyes from Smeared Ink's Anatomy 101 digi set and colored them with copic markers.  I used modpodge to attach the eyes  to my plastic egg.  I then ripped an old sheet into thin strips and wrapped several layers onto the egg with modpodge.  When dry, I inked the fabric with distress inks in walnut and black soot for an aged effect and then added a clean layer of fabric strips to my mummy egg for contrast.

I love the way my egg turned out!  Now I must figure out how to make a zombie egg!  

Thanks for stopping by!

I will be entering my egg into the following challenges:

Art With no Boundaries: "the eyes have it" - I've used eyes on my project
Addicted to Stamps: "Spring/Easter, must use a stamp" - I made an easter egg with a digital stamp of eyes.
Paper Sundaes: "Easter" - I made an Easter Egg
The Cheerful Stamp Pad: "Anything Goes"
