Countdown to Confetti - Day 2

Hello there!  I'm back for day 2 of the Countdown to Confetti!  All of the products showcased today will be available in the Reverse Confetti store on August 8th!


Today I have a card to share with you using the new stamp set, In a Jam, and the coordinating Jam Jar Confetti Cuts!  The stamp set has several different jar labels that fit perfectly onto the jar.  So cute!!



Plum Perfect

To create my card, I watercolored using Dusty Concord Distress Ink on a piece of watercolor paper. I painted several layers, drying in between each one, and that added a spattering of the same ink on top.  While I waited for everything to dry, I diecut the Jam Jar from white cardstock, and the lid from kraft cardstock.  I inked the edges of the lid with Vintage Photo distress ink to give it some more dimension, and added a twine bow and a button.  I colored the jar with copic markers, and added some accents with a white gel pen.  Then I stamped a label image from the In a Jam stamp set, and diecut it with the coordinating die.  I popped it up on the jar with foam tape.  I added a strip of patterned paper to the bottom of my watercolor piece, and popped the jar and lid up with foam tape.  Finally, I popped the entire panel up on a white card base.

Love this card! I'm gonna show my age here, but this card reminds me of the Strawberry Shortcake doll called Plum Pudding! Love the tone on tone - I struggle with pulling that look off! You did it beautifully!
