Garden In a jar

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today, I am on Jane's blog and I have used the latest release stamp set Cactus 

I love succulents. I have many in my gardens in all types of containers.


 When I was in collage and staying in dorms, because of space constraint  I used to grow small succulents in a jam jars. That was kind of my personal garden...:). Today's card is inspired from those days. 

One more thing I would like to share. I have this habit of making masks as soon as I get my new releases. 

They are made from full adhesive post-it . I stick them on the back of the acetate and I am ready to go! This helps me to make  cards quickly and  also helps me to decide my layout.

So back to the card....
I have use a jar stamp from Life is Good  set and created a mini garden in it.

It took me a while to  select images and positioning them. I used copics to color the images.Coloring the jar took the longest...;) I wanted to paint the transparency of glass, hope I achieved it. With copics, learning is never ending process. 

I also applied wink of stella on soil. It looks better in person.

I had lots of fun making this card. Hope you will try this set out. I will soon be posting another card with same set !
