Bacon and Eggs, Anyone?


I fried up some paper bacon and eggs yesterday.

I made the egg and bacon strips using a mixture of Liquitex gloss gel medium and Imaginecrafts Goosebump spray.  I watercolored the bacon and inked up the yolk after cupping the circle in the middle using a stylus.  Then I put a large amount of the gel mixture on the papers and fried them with a heat tool.  I did a few layers on the bacon sponging on some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut stain in between coats.  Built up an extra layer of gel on the yolk. 

I was inspired by three challenges on  the Inspiration Challenge (my choice of image was some pretty Easter Eggs), the Sketch Challenge (I used it for this card), and the Mixed Media Challenge (my blue paper strip is from a security envelope lining and I used three mediums to qualify).  If you are not a member, I really encourage you to join (it is free unless you want a Fan Club Membership which is not expensive and well worth it). 

I am off to fry up some real bacon!



  1. This is the most realistic and fun bacon and eggs I've ever seen besides the real thing! I love this creative and unique card - so much fun!

  2. WOW - this is one of the coolest cards I've ever seen! Love it!

  3. It is totally amazing how real this meal looks. I'll bet the real bacon you were cooking up is just as delicious also. Wonderful use for the security envelope strip. I'll have to try to remember that. Wishing you a great Sunday.

  4. This is brilliant Nancy, your bacon and eggs look good enough to eat - a super make.

  5. I can't believe how realistic your bacon and eggs look Nancy. All the layering must have taken a lot longer than cooking up real bacon and eggs. I am so impressed. TFS my friend. Love your layout too. Hugs, Nancy

  6. Oh my gosh are brilliant...I'm bowing right now!! :)
