Mini Mason Jar Tag

Darkroom Door - Friday, April 07, 2017

Hi there! It's Rachel Greig here with you today sharing a tag using the new Mini Mason Jar Eclectic Stamp! This is such a cute stamp, as it's a smaller version of the popular Mason Jar Frame Stamp, which means you could also use them together to create a collection of jars in your projects. 

The Mini Mason Jar is a great size to use on tags:

1. First I created the background on the tag using Distress Oxide inks by swiping them onto a non-stick craft sheet and spritzing with water, then running the tag through the ink. Repeat until you have the tag covered in a delicious layer of colour! Allow to dry. Do the same on a smaller piece of card for the quote. 
2. Adhere a green die cut piece to the bottom of the tag. 
2. Stamp the Mini Mason Jar and two flowers from the Fine Flowers Vol 2 stamp set onto smooth watercolour paper using Archival Jet Black ink and trim around each image. Colour the flowers with Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide inks by picking up some of the ink from the craft sheet and colouring with an aquas brush. Do the same with Broken China ink to create water in the jar. 
3. Wrap some thin twine or embroidery floss around the top of the jar and tie at the front. Adhere the jar to the tag with foam adhesive. 
4. Cut the stems of the flowers and adhere the bottoms to the jar and the tops underneath the top of the jar so it looks like they are sticking out from the top. Adhere to tag with foam adhesive. 
5. Stamp a quote from the Viva la Flora Vol 2 stamp set onto the small background piece of card using Archival Jet Black ink. Use a paper distresser to distress all sides before adhering to the tag.
6. Colour some crinkle ribbon using Worn Lipstick Distress Stain and allow to dry before tying to the tag to complete!

Oh my gosh Rachel! I am wildly in love with this tag! I love the idea of the mini mason jar as the large is quite large! This is superb in every way. I had wanted to do the large jar full of flowers, but never ever could have achieved such a springtime beauty as you have! Big wow!
