Paper Craft Business Challenge September ~ Thank You

Hello everyone!!
Welcome back for Septembers challenge

This month is Anything Goes or Thank You.

 I used a Stampendous Stamp - CSD04 Bouquet & Mason Jar,
Scrapbook and Cards today Happy Easter / Spring sentiment, 
Lawn Fawn Quilted Background,
Tim Holtz Distress Markers & Inks, 
twine & washi tape by Recollections
& of course various papers.

 I stamped my image on watercolour paper with Ranger Archival Ink.
I coloured in part of the image with the markers and 
added more colour and shading with the ink pads using a water brush.
I notched the mason jar image at the bottom ring once cut out, 
to have the twine sit in place as it would on a real jar.

The above card has two layers of pop-dots on the flowers & one on the jar.
I wanted the flowers to come off the page more than the jar.

 I usually make the same size cards, so I thought i would shake it up a little, 
the larger square card gives the jar more blank space surrounding it, 
and makes more of a focal point.

 When I stamped the image I coloured two, 
as one usually turns out better than the other, 
and I like to try to make more than one at a time.

I am really enjoying the watercolur with distress ink, 
I may just need to do more of these!

Thank you for stopping by to see my creation 

I do hope that you come and join us at
