This week, we are presenting the results from Ranger's Easter themed Designer's Challenge: we gave craft eggs to some of our favorite designers and crafty employees, and asked them to decorate the eggs for Easter using Ranger products.
Jenni painted wooden eggs with her Malted Milk Acrylic Paint Dabber, and accented them with colorful butterflies. The butterflies were made by mixing various reinkers with water in the Mini Mister and giving them a spritz.
Terry started out with a styrofoam egg and paper mached it with Glue n' Seal and Tissue Tape. She then gave it a wash of Antique Linen Distress Stain and used Picket Fence Distress Stickles to add some sugary sparkle to her flowers.
Wendy Vecchi started out with a paper mache egg and used the following to make her magnificent creation:

"When I decorate my tree my favorite part is remembering the history of the ornaments. I love hanging the ones that my children made and seeing them now as adults and remembering how they were when they created the ornament. Haley will certainly be celebrated for years to come on her Christmas tree! Thanks for the warm fuzzies and for reminding us how special it is to craft with our children! PS I love the ornaments!"
