Easter Home Decor


Hi everyone!

It's Susanne today and I like to share with you some Easter decoration I created for myself. I used a styrofoam heart and a egg and of course the beautiful Rubber Dance stamps.


I started by stamping the images on a big piece of tissue paper. I used black Archival Ink, because it is waterproof. I cut the little images apart and ripped the bigger ones into smaller pieces. I put the styrofoam pieces on a spear.




I adhered the paper savings with Mod Podge® to the styrofoam. It's important to start on the edges of the heart and on the top and bottom side of the egg. So you'll get a beautiful image in the middle.
After everything was dry I paint some acrylic paint randomly onto the heart and the egg. I used a color called "butter". I add some ribbons to finish it up.
I love the result. It looks totally shabby chic. The stamps are working so well with this theme and I'm sure this would also be a nice gift idea for the spring season.





Thanks for stopping by!
Susanne


I used the following stamps from Rubber Dance:
Vintage Birds
Old Book Page Stamp
Antique Botanicals

  3. Thank you, Susanne! ♥ They are so pretty, I'd keep them out all year 'round! :-) Quite easy to make, maybe something the kids would enjoy doing as well. The pussy willows are so adorable, by the way. They're not quite that big here yet, but if I take some indoors I bet they will be very soon :-) We call them "gåsunger" in Norwegian, means "goose kids" - and they certainly look like tiny goose chicks, don't they? Anyway, thanks again for a great post and wonderful project! :-)
