You Are Incredi-ball!

Hello from Judy Jackson!
 
There is nothing quite home canned goods in the middle of winter. On my canned goods shelves, I have tomatoes, tomato juice (only a few jars), spaghetti sauce, peaches, bread and butter pickles, dill pickles, Chili sauce for a condiment, and soon I will have apple sauce, and some apple pie filling.  In my freezer I have freezer jam with peach jam, strawberry jam, blackberry jam, and red raspberry jam.
 
My children and my grandchildren have all caught various bugs over the years in canning jars.  I am showing this kind of activity on this card. I used the Technique Junkie Stamps  jar set http://techniquejunkies.com/incrediball-canning-jar-set-of-2/  and this butterfly stamp http://techniquejunkies.com/butterfly2/.  
 
 
 
Those same children and grandchildren have made fairy dust that sparkles and shines from "glow sticks" broken open into canning jars.

 
To create this raspberry jam this is what I did.  I stamped the jars on clear acetate with black Stazon ink.  Then i flipped the acetate and colored the inside of the jar with a red Copic marker.  But now I need the "bumps" for jam.  I used the small dots on the Wasted stamp with red Stazon ink and stamped over the Copic ink.  The saying on the front of the card comes from Mae West Sentiment 2 set http://techniquejunkies.com/mae-west-sentiments-2-set-of-5/. 

 
 
Do you do any canning in your house to prepare for winter?   Have an inky day!
