Hi all,

I just finished these Easter Eggs up for a friend down in NOLA.  She loves Mardi Gras and tells me that the Fleur d'Lis is the city's official symbol so I tried to make one for each theme:

I love how the swirly background turned out on this, although I'm less than thrilled with the masked reveler.


Here is the Fleur d'Lis. 


Comments/Criticism?  I welcome it all Cheesy  I've only just shipped these so she hasn't gotten them yet but I don't think she frequents these boards much Smiley

Thanks Smiley

They're made of real eggshells.  I blow them out, clean them and paint them.

Here's a page about how to empty out eggs. Smiley
