Wish Big Altered Jar

Hi everyone, have you altered any jars lately?  There are so many ways you can alter jars and so many different products you can use.  Today,  I'm using clay, stamps and inks to create a wishing jar. 

I formed white clay around the jar.  You don't need to be perfect, a few lumps and bumps add character to the jar.
While still wet, use several stamps and randomly stamp on the clay without ink.  You get a nice impression in the clay.

Use another stamp with ink and randomly stamp into the clay, transferring color.

Use Izink with a baby wipe to add more color around the jar.  The liquid works it's way into the impressions and the baby wipe helps move the color around the jar.

To finish, tie twine around the jar and attach a stamped tag.

Clay:  Makin's Clay
Stamps:  ColorBox Background Basics by Ann Butler; Wood Block Stamp
Inks:  ColorBox Crafter's by Ann Butler; ColorBox Dye Ink - Kettle,
Izink Pigment Ink - Citronella

Thanks for stopping by today.
