This week's challenge really stumped me until I spotted the Good Thymes Together stamp set and pattern 8 from Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 4. I created a card base using Mink Cardstock, added Sweet Leaf B&T paper from the Whimsy Fundamentals Paper Packet, and accented it with Heather Cardstock. The banner is stamped with Mink ink on the light side of Mink Cardstock for a subtle tone on tone look.
The Clear Shimmer Brush adds a sparkly sheen to the jar lids, balloon heart, and the accent strip across the card. I tried to capture the sparkle, but pictures don't do it justice. I used the new Basic Circle Tags Thin Cuts to cut a Heather tag as a backdrop for the two thyme jars. I dipped a dry waterbrush into Sweet Leaf ink to add color to the thyme leaves and the balloon, and Mink ink for the lids.
I kept the inside simple to leave room for a handwritten note. The Heather accent strip and balloon hearts are highlighted with the Clear Shimmer Brush as well.
