52CCT - November Recipe Challenge #23

Hello dear friends and followers!  Have you been enjoying Louise's November challenges as much as I have?  I must say that she has pushed me outside of my comfort zone a time or two with her awesome ideas and challenges - and I have really had fun with it.  When I saw the 52CCT Recipe Challenge #23 I let out a HUGE groan... One layer? Only a hint of color? Oh My!  Just didn't know if I can do it. One layer alone strikes fear in my heart - LOL.  But look what I did:
By Jove I did it!! I'm so proud of myself!
This is my newest stamp set from Freshly Squeezed Stamps - I just love it!  I stamped the jar first and put just the slightest shading around the image with a copic marker (C02). Then I stamped two layers of the candy inside the jar using Primrose Petal and then Gumball Green - how perfect is that ink name for this image?(Stampin Up!).  It worked really nicely with the clear stamps, didn't even need to use my Stamp-M-Jig for the inside.  I did use my Stamp-M-Jig for the sentiment though because I was so excited about how my candy jar turned out that I didn't want to risk a crooked or sloped sentiment.  My bling (Close to My Heart) looks some of the gumballs have escaped the jar, don't you agree?   This is on Whisper White cardstock, but my photo is a bit dark (bummer).
Please go visit the other lovely ladies over at 52CCT and see what they have made for your inspiration using 52CCT Recipe Challenge #23.  I hope that you will decide to join us and share your fabulous One-Layer card.
You'll be seeing another card early next week from me using this same set - so stay tuned :o)  Til next time friends.... hugs and happy crafting! D
