Papertrey Ink Friendship Jar

I came across a neat challenge on the Moxie Fab World blog called "Jars of Joy" and was intrigued.  
 
For my project  I used Papertrey Ink's Friendship Jar & Friendship Jar Summer Fillers stamp sets along with their Desktop File dies.  I stamped the images on the already cut out Desktop File die and went to work coloring.  
I've had a fascination with mason jars since I was a little girl and enjoy collecting and using them. 
The old mason jars we have are what inspired my color choice for the jar today.
Pictured above is the file card behind the colored image.  I used the Papertrey Ink Desktop File Inspiration stamp set to stamp this and modified it ever so slightly to record my marker choices.  The modification is I drew extra lines to color in using a Copic multiliner.  
Here's a close up of the colored strawberries in the jar.  
Thanks for visiting my blog today -

This is fabulous! I have a few old jars too but not as many as you, nor do I display them anymore...shame on me. Yours are a bit more interesting than mine. I'm intrigued by placing something to look like it is INSIDE the jar....you pulled it how...super!
