Vellum jar

I found a cool punch a couple of weeks ago while browsing at my local craft store - it's a cute little jar.  Right away I had an idea of cutting it from vellum and using it to hold a stamped bouquet.

Took me a little thinking to get the idea in my head onto paper, but here it is:

I punched out the jar from both vellum (for the overlay) and also from watercolor paper, which I painted with a light wash of blue to simulate water. Then I stamped the stems from a little bouquet onto the paper jar, added the vellum with tiny dots of Tombow Mono Multi Glue and tied a bit of linen thread around the neck of the jar.  I colored the bouquet stamp with markers and then lined up the jar onto the stamped image.
