A Jar Challenge

Last Saturday I went to a 12 hour craft day in Stockport and spent a fantastic day in great company. We all just played with our stash for 12 hours - brilliant!!!!!!!
Alison had brought various challenges for us to draw at random and try if we wanted to and the one that I drew was to decorate a glass jar.
I used alcohol inks to cover the glass first, then I decorated the jar using MME and seven gypsies papers. I added gold paint to the rim, stamped some 7 gypsies tags with a holly stamp and a blonde moments sentiment, and finished it off with American Crafts ribbon.
I'm not sure what I'll use it for - might save some pennies in it to buy Christmas goodies, or I might just fill it with yummy chocolates ready to hand round.
I also made some Christmas Cards and decorated a 7 gypsies portfolio, but I'll post those another day. x
