Mason's Pot

 The Challenge at Whiff of Joy this week is anything but a card. Having just finished making 170 wedding invitations I am a bit carded out so thought I would have a go.

I pinched this jar from a work colleague which was at one time full of old fashioned sweets like Rhubarb and Custard, Cola Cubes; Pear Drops and other such goodies, we were very good though, they lasted a good couple of months!

 The jar is the perfect size for keeping my grandsons play dough pieces in.

 To decorate I have used some of the real cute stamps from the Whiff of Joy Spring collection which I haven't had time to ink up before.
 The background paper was made using distress stains on copier paper, scrunched and sprayed with water before drying with heat gun. I then added some Treasure Pewter Gilt Cream
All the images were coloured with copics.
