I decided to create a card celebrating the beautiful blooms of spring that are wonderful to capture and put in a simple mason jar on the table.
I started with using her squares stencil and layering in a soft shading of antique linen in the background. I then used the Archival ink to stamp the vintage test through the stencil in various areas to add a little depth.
I then stamped the mason jar on acetate using Stazon ink. I colored the backside of the jar with an alcohol marker to give it a hint of blue.
I cut out the mason jar. I then stamped the flowers and stems a few times and colored them with distress markers and the same ink used on the background. I cut them out and added a crackle glaze to the flowers. The flowers got a smattering of glass beads for the center.
I stamped the lovely sentiment in coordinating ink on my background which decided where my flowers and jar were going to be placed.
Thanks for stopping by and please come join us in the challenge on the Frilly and Funkie blog!
