Smudgy Antics EGG-static challenge and Beyond The Burtonesque Dolls rotten egg challenge and 8 other Challenge site's I was lucky enough to find today. Please accept my entry.

Hello all. I totally got side tracked on posting this to go along with the challenge over at Smudgy Antics and also would like to enter these eggs into another challenge that I have never entered in. Better now than never right?  Its over at Beyond The Burtonesque Dolls their theme this week is Rotten Egg challenge. So I had to totally share these eggs with them as well. 
Believe it or not this was actually a challenging challenge for me. I was very honored is being asked to be the Guest Designer for Smeared and Smudged Forum. YES Guest Designer. I was floored when they asked me. I'm more of a blog challenge stalker follower type of person not someone who likes to be in the center of anything. Especially attention. I'm the girl that always sit in the back of the classroom if you know what I mean?  So for the challenge's I usually enter at Smudgy Antics we get to see some awesome inspiration pieces to get some idea's. Nope not this time. They threw me in a room all by myself gave me a theme and then turned the lights out on me on the way out... Nah just joking about the last part.... Thats my sick sense of humor coming out. But without any inspiration to go on I felt like I was totally left in the dark.
But I bit my lip stuck my tongue out the side of my mouth and had at it..
I ended up making 3 eggs and 1 of my poe eggs totally got thrown out of the picture. (Literally)
I didnt think it deserved a solo pic so that's him there in the background. It started out cool and then I dropped it and it got even cooler looking as I put more cracks all over it and then sprayed more walnut ink on it. It totally looked like it was going to be the best one but when I stamped the pic of tissue paper and mod podged it on it just didnt look right. I didnt have any white eggs to start off with anyway. All that was in my fridge at the time was brown eggs. So I ended up making 2 more. One grumpie stamped image that I stuck some of those micro beads too and used tons of homemade red ink spray and then the 2nd poe egg I left uncolored and stamped the chain link fence stamp from quote the raven rubber set and of course poe himself and then stuck some back lace ribbon around it... So there are my first deco eggs in a long time.
You totally have to go check out all the design teams eggs... wooowwww man like I said I am so honored to even have any of my work anywhere near there's in a listing. 
Also I just got finished looking through all the entries for this weeks challenge and I must say everyone did a fabulous job on this. I totally wouldnt want Mr. Random's job that's for sure...

Hahaha love your description about being left to your own devices to come up with something. I think you have created 3 wonderful pieces of egg art and should be really proud of them :)
