Blog Candy!!! :-D

Yeap, you read right!  I'm offering a *blog candy* :-D

But first (I'm gonna make you suffer a little bit...LOL!), let me share with you this week's project:  an Easter egg.

This is such a quick and easy project that even your kids can help you with ;-)

I personally don't like to use *real* eggs, so instead I purchased one of those plastic ones...  the best part of it was to eat what was inside...LOL! ;-)  Then, with a sanding block, I scratched its entire surface to make it porous.  Then I applied three layers of Antique White Acrylic Paint, letting it dry a little bit between each layer.  The good thing about acrylic paint is that it dries quickly, so it won't take you long to completely cover it with the paint, neither have to wait *over-night* to continue working on it ;-)

And finally, added the embellishments...  just a few ribbons and flowers...  and of course, Bunny Tilda, which I colored with Distress Inks (I'm so in love with these inks!) :-D  Here's a side view of the egg:

See the ribbons and flowers?  Again, I used crepe paper to make the pink flower...  and my Sizzix to cut the felt flowers that are being used as a mat or floor.

OK, now for the *blog candy*....

All you have to do is make a layout, card, craft...  anything that you like...  but it has to have a Tilda in it!  Also, it doesn't has to be a Easter theme related ;-)  Then leave a comment under this post...  with a link to your blog or online gallery...  so we can all appreciate your creation ;-)

One important thing:  it doesn't matter if you're on the other side of the World, anyone is welcome to apply!! :-D

You have until midnight of Easter Day (Sunday, April 4th) to leave your link.  The winner will be chosen by the Random Integer Generator and announced on Monday.

In return, the lovely winner will receive this:

A brand new...  never been used...  unmounted Spring Rain Magnolia!
Really cute, ha?
Now hurry up and start working...  I just can't wait to see what you guys come up with :-)

Oh, and thanks for stopping by!
