Flower Garden Stamped Easter Eggs

This Easter Egg Decorating Fanatic has finally landed on a favorite technique! Stamping garden imagery with fluid chalk. I can’t think of a better nod to those spring blooms than showing your eggs a little botanical love.

Steps:

  • Press a rubber stamp #CommissionEarned into the ink pad #CommissionEarned and then gently roll a stamp along the egg’s surface
  • Dry area completely with hair dryer before stamping another section


“Flower Garden” mini tub of stamps by Hero ArtsThe super cute Hero Arts Flower Garden Mini Tub “Flower Garden” mini tub of stamps by Hero Arts #CommissionEarned contains a collection of 12 flower stamps, gems of varying sizes, and a four-color pigment cube. The stamps are very small so they work VERY well for embellishments on cards, small projects…and EGGS! It made me feel really good learning the stamps were hand cut and assemble in the USA, and the wood originates from sustainable managed forests! Since I paint furniture I was super excited to figure out that I can use Porch Nook chalky finish paint with these stamps…my mind began spinning with the embellishment possibilities! Overall, I’d say this kit was a smart buy.

I was amazed how it shares the resilience of pigment ink, but stamps and blends like dye ink. It does become permanent when heat set and, amazingly resists smearing or bleeding when I used the hair dryer.

Clearsnap Colorbox Petal Point, Fluid Chalk InkpadBeing that I am a VERY messy person, I did appreciate Clearsnaps #CommissionEarned attempt to make me feel less of a #hotmess by making these cases stackable. Also, the handy wheel design allowed me to remove or replace a color so I could rearrange the order. Nice!

 HAVE A WONDERFUL EASTER!

* IMPORTANT NOTE: I called Clearsnap to confirm if fluid chalk is food safe. They kindly explained the ink is NOT FDA approved, therefore it is NOT recommended to apply on eggs you plan on eating. Therefore your options are: 1) hallow out the eggs, 2) hard boil the eggs and don’t eat them, or 3) replace the fluid chalk with Edible Food Markers.
