Friendship Jar

Hi there!

Today I've got a card I made last week, using on of my favourite stamp sets--funnily enough this is the first time I've used it despite loving it to bits.

The Papertrey Ink Friendship Jar series is by the uber talented Michelle Wooderson and just so so beautiful. I love all the additional elements you get with the extra sets you can buy to go along with it.

Today I've used the Spring Fillers set to go with the original Jar image.

Just for You Friendship Jar

I saw a tutorial on Youtube about how to get the flower petals to have the two colours (I'm sorry I can't find it again--i'll be sure to link it up if I do find where I saw it!) and I really loved the effect, so thought I'd give it a go.  I didn't overblend the two colours, because I think flowers often do have quite a strong line where they move from red to yellow (or white to pink etc etc).

To make the jar look like actual glass, I covered it in Glossy Accents and allowed it to dry. I love how the bubbles from the GA make it look as though the glass is real.

The patterned paper is from a small 6x6 collection I've had for years and I'm unable to find the label for (it was a loose collection not a pad) so I'm sorry for the lack of link down the bottom for it.

Anyhoo, that's it for me!  Thanks so much for stopping by!!

I'll be back again soon with some more to share :)

I hope your 2012 is going beautifully!

Great card! That stamp is gorgeous, and I love the way you color the flowers! That must have been a lot of glossy accents, but the effect is worth it!

Love the glass effect. So that is just glossy accents, no color behind it? That is cool, it has a blue hue to it that makes it so fabulous!

Another great card Linda. I always wondered what glossy accents would like like on a large scale but didn't want to waste my supply. Hope you're enjoying the new year so far!
