More Jars of Love with Embossed Lace using tone on tone techniques -a CASE of a CASE of myself!!

I made these jars cards very early on when I first opened the Delicate Details lace set. I loved the lace designs but I also thought that the straight and swirly lines image in that set could also double for the bumpy base you see around the bottom of some old glass jars and bottles, and even the ridges for the screw top lids. 
I was also busy creating samples for a display for our stamping retreat and wanted to show off the brilliant bright current In-colours by using some tone on tone sponging to create depth and increase the brightness of plain cardstock shapes.  This is a technique I love to use and I did it last year with the teacups. (there's a sample and the link at the end of this page)
Jar of Love is a fabulous set, but the little love heart and thankyou are super cute too - you'll find them in the Lift Me Up bundle

You can find the post with the teacups here

As you can see I have CASEd myself!  - which is totally Ok because I still love the design.
Yesterday's colour INKspiration is a CASE of these bright jars, and the jars are a CASE of the teacups. When you're on a good thing-stick to it! I love the white on Kraft look and that big polka dot stencil is my fave.

thanks for looking, and remember,
