Morning girls. Firstly apologies for the bad picture, you ladies in the UK are complaining that the dull days are playing havoc with your photos, but I'm complaining about the sun playing havoc with mine!!!
This altered jar is for the Secret Crafter Challenge 18 where the theme is recycling. I set aside this jar a while ago, but never got around to doing anything with it, then just yesterday I remembered it so here we are. I've never altered anything before so this was something new for me.
The jar originally had some red beans in it and after several thorough washes it was ready to alter. I used my nesties for the top and the small penny black image is coloured with distress inks and whispers. I embossed the pink layer with my d'vine swirl embossing folder and I used ribbon to hide the edges of the lid. Both the green layers have been pierced for a bit of extra detail. For the sides I simply layered green and pink card and some DP but you can't really see this too well in the picture.
Card/Paper: Green and pink card, paper from stash
Stamp: Penny black
Colouring: Distress inks - vintage photo, tattered rose, and worn lipstick. Green whispers pen.
Tools: Cuttlebug, Nesties, d'vine swirl embossing folder, needle
Thanks for looking. x
