Lulu and her string egg sounds like the start of a story, so here is my story on how Lulu came to be carrying this giant egg.
When I first saw the Lulu Spring transparent set 30-166, I just fell in love with Lulu carrying the giant egg, I then remembered that I had a picture on my pinterest board of string balls, it was then when I decided to swap Lulu's stamped egg for a string one and this is the result.
So to create this little 3D card/scene;
1) I stamped Lulu onto white card using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and then embossed her with clear powder.
2) I coloured her with copic markers and cut her out. I then added wire to the back so that I could get her to stand on the base (cut using Spellbinders nesting circles) - I punched two small holes in the base and threaded the wire ends through.
3) 3 Small chocolate eggs were then put in a balloon and the balloon was inflated to create a small egg shape. I then soaked the cotton string in Beacon Stiffen Stuff, allowed it to dry and then added another coat.
4) The balloon was then punctured and the remnants extracted using tweezers, a ribbon was added and then the egg was glued to Lulu to finish.
If I did this project again, I would use thiner string to get a more delicate look.
I bet who ever gets this will wonder how I got the eggs in the string!!!
