Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is "Favorite Preorder Stamp" and I'll be honest with you, whichever stamp I am using at the time is my current favorite. I can't choose just one! So, since I hadn't played with Jar of Flowers yet, and a friend is having a milestone birthday next week, that became my favorite du jour! This set was near the top of my wish list when I saw the new catalog, so I was happy to see it on the preorder list.
The flowers and jar outline stamps were first stamped in Smoky Slate, then Pool Party ink was applied with a sponge dauber to the jar filler stamp (the reverse side of the jar stamp) to lighten the color a bit. The water was stamped with Pool Party full strength.
THEN the magic happened! I stamped the jar filler again in VersaMark and applied clear embossing powder so the jar is shiny like glass. The flowers were stamped twice more so I could fussy cut to add depth to the bouquet.
