Altered Glass Jar

This idea was inspired by a sample in the new Spring-Summer 2009 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog. I found a glass jar and decided to decorate it similiar to the sample on page 79 in the catalog! I used the new jumbo wheel called Friendly Words and wheeled it on a piece of Confetti White card stock using a Chocolate Chip ink cartridge. Then I tore the edges to give it a distressed kind of look. I mounted that onto a piece of Old Olive textured card stock. If you click on the picture to view it larger, you can see that I sponged So Saffron ink to distress it even further. I embellished with a So Saffron heart punched using the Heart to Heart punch and adhered a button to it from the Button Latte collection. Oh, I also tied a piece of Linen Thread through the button. I love that linen thread! This jar can be used to put a candle in or used on a desk for pens or markers!
