Always Better Together

This was a very quick card but I love how it turned out. 

A friend suggested the teal mason jar and I ran with it. It turned out to be an absolute favorite way to color a mason jar. I may end up doing many more like that.

I colored the image and then I die cut the panel with a wacky rectangle die. It allowed a bit more of the pink card stock I was going to mount it on show around the edge. I decided to add a layer of white in between and I love the extra texture it gave the card.

When I was doing the coloring, I laid down the brown stems first, using the lighter brown inside the jar and the darker outside the jar. I colored the jar and then used the colorless blender to help add highlights back in. The flowers were done a bit different than I usually color. I wanted just a soft touch of pink so I filled the entire flower with colorless blender, really saturating the paper. Then I used one color of pink along the bottom of the flower and blended out with the colorless blender.

The string was originally white and I wanted it to match, so I mixed a bit of colorless blender refill and R81 refill in a tiny bowl and stuck my piece of string in until I had the color I wanted. I cut the string into two pieces. I threaded one of the pieces through holes I poked on either side of the jar. I tied a the remaining bit into a bow around that string.
