Hummmm eggs??? Got to get my creative juices going for this one... lol... Gotta love Gothic Arches Challenge. They always seem to come up with a topic to stretch your creativity, and I love that.

I was able to try out my brand new die cut from Tim Holtz and used Picket Fence crackle paint to give it that aged look. The bird is also a part of the die cut and I watercolored this. The eggs are made out of large dew drops that were painted and then tinted with Pumice Stone Distressed Ink. The nest is made from some wonderful antique tinsel.
The background, I got a little literal and used egg shells and modge podged it to my arch. I really love the look.
And now to all the women out that they have made a difference in a childs life... "Happy Mothers Day"...
