So, if you're feelin like you want to get your fingers nice and dirty...go on and make these little notes to give to friends and family! :-) The kids would have a blast creating their own little finger eggs too!
All you need is:
-a few pieces of white cardstock bent into cards
-two or more "Eastery" paint colors
-a plastic plate (but I didn't have one so I used wax paper?!--I know just go with me here ;-D)
First, take your paint and drop about 18-20 colors on your plate/paper...than sort of eye ball it and mix in different variations of colors (for ex: for the lighter pinks I did 3-5 drops of white on top of my pink) Mix each droplet with your toothpick (cleaning it off each time you mix a different drop)--
wow that sounds way more complicated than it is.
**in other words make 18-20 different shades of pink and purple! :-)**
Here comes the fun part...take your finger and with each shade of pink/purple (or whatever colors you chose) make a little egg fingerprint...
My palette got a little out of wack...I was mixing and testing all over the place--so feel free to get crazy! They're your cards anyway :-)
And here ya have it...pretty eggtastic indeed! :-)
