Day 185: Egg Carton Earrings

So, the other day, I saw a link pop up on my Facebook page. It was a link to Tiffany Windsor’s site and specifically to a post about earrings made from recycled egg cartons. I shared it on my Facebook wall and the consensus was the the textures reminded people of the ocean so I decided to try making a pair for today’s project.

Egg Carton Earrings

I could explain the process but Tiffany posted nice clear instructions (if you visit the link above). I used a Stampin’ Up brush marker in Taken with Teal and then used Chiffon White and a little bit of silver ink to highlight the textures and to mimic the white caps that you see on the ocean. I decided to take my photo using the actual egg carton as a backdrop which was a little bit challenging, but seemed like the right thing to do.

Definitely a different medium for me and it certainly resulted in a very lightweight pair of earrings. Not sure if they are quite my style or not, but I will hold on to them for now and see if they grow on me.
