Perfectly Preserved Jar Vase in wisteria and eggplant
Playing around with the Jar as vase idea. Stamp the jar on scrap piece of white with versamark then emboss with clear embossing powder. heat set. color the water with a duaber and bashful blue. Stamp stems to match flower arrangement. Stamp the flowers with wisteria inkpad then use eggplant marker to spot color. Use a mask to avoid overlap (don't do it like me!) Stamp some extra on scrap pieces of white and cut it out. (Sorry folks, no die for this one) stamp one on the base of the card to look like you are going to put it in the vase and stamp the stems to match. Add flowers you cut out to the arragement to add some dimension. Stamp sentiment from lovely little labels and punch it out using matching punch. Tie linen thread around jar and add label using dimensional. I cleaned the stamp really well and used a marker to stamp a few of the flowers to stamp it on the side to look like some petals fell off. also daubered some bashful blue below the vase to ground it before I attached the jar. I use the scoring tool to add 2 score lines to the edge as shown.
