Altered Egg - Tussie Mussie

This Altered Egg is finally done, after 3 attempts.  The first one broke as I was putting the lid on, 2nd one I wasn't happy with, so naturally I was really hoping that the 3rd time was the charm.  I am really luving this, it just might be my favorite piece of art I've done.  First I glued alum foil to a plastic egg, then used alcohol inks, added some frilly wire, ribbon, flowers and a metal butterfly which I also used alcohol ink to give it some color.

The next thing that I did was to create a Tussie Mussie.  To be honest, I had never heard of Tussie Mussie until I joined the swap.  It was so much fun to create.  It's made with paper, lace, button, and beads.  Hope my partner is happy with it!
