See... I really wasn't kidding about my current jar obsession yesterday, LOL!
Here I am with yet another card featuring a jar and I can guarantee you that it won't be my last. I really was trying to be good and broaden my horizons a bit but as I was cleaning my desk and putting stamps away I couldn't help but think that Paisley Pixie by Christy Croll would look awesome inside the pint sized jar from the Paper Trey Ink Summer Fillers set.
My plan was almost derailed when I pulled out Paisley and saw that the flowers she holds aren't as straight up and down as I needed them to be for my idea to work. But that just meant I would have to get more creative to make it happen. So I inked up Paisley and the single flower down by her head and stamped them onto the cardstock. Then I masked that off and inked up the big bunch of wild flower blooms and stamped them in a more vertical direction that makes them look like they are behind her now. Next it was super easy to line up the mini jar stamp around Paisley because the PTI stamps are clear. Then I just started to color, color, color... and because I spent most of my crafty time coloring I kept the rest of the card clean and simple.
Oh, and I am also entering this card into the open challenge at Flutter By this week. Not only do I have a cute little pixie who got herself stuck trying to put flowers in that jar but I've also finished the scene off with a few fluttering butterflies for good measure.
TGIF and I'll talk at'cha again tomorrow. :)
