An Altered Jar !!!

Hi Everyone

Today, I would like to show you this altered jar I've made for a work colleague, I've filled it with her favourite boiled sweets - Thornton's Liquorice and Blackcurrant.   

I've used Tilda with Lollipop and coloured her with my Copic Markers.

 For the lid I made a Fan Fold Flower and finished it with a button and a paper rose. 

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges

Simon Says... - Make a Gift
Fab N' Funky - Flower Power
Gingersnap Creations - Go 3-Dimensional
Wild Orchid Challenge - One For The Girls


Stamps: Magnolia Tilda with Lollipop.  Sentiment from Stampin' Up Yummy Set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers
Paper: Stampin' Up
Card: From my stash
Tools: Nesties Small and Large Rectangles, Nesties Large Scalloped Rectangle with Sizzix Big Shot.  Stampin' Up Scalloped Edger Punch

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you like it.
