Jar of Love

Jar of  Love.  Jar’s are in right now, especially Mason Jars, which makes me feel all trendy because I have been drinking from Mason (quart size) jars for years.  Why?  They are big, hold lots of water, don’t break when you drop them and are super cheap to purchase.  Why wouldn’t you use them.

I have a blue shaded mason jar that is my favorite to use.  Except for the color it is just like any other Mason Jar, I guess I just like the color.  My card today was inspired by that jar.



The jar was created by stamping the jar image with Black Archival Ink on vellum, then cropping it with the framelits.  Turn it over and sponge on pool party ink, using a bit more on the rim, bottom and edges for shading.  I adhered it with Vellum tape so it would not show through.

Before I stamped the stems I marked lightly with pencil where the top and bottom of the jar would be on my paper.  I wanted to make sure the flowers would be above the rim of the jar.  Ask me how I figured out to do this…….


I repeated the look inside by sponging the jar with pool party.  The horizon lines on front and back were added with a ruler and black marker.
