Clarity Challenge...Anything But A Card

Well its been a little while since I entered and have made this one on the last day!
Anything But A Card - well that took some thinking and searching and eventually came up with this little project - up cycling a jam jar in to a tea light holder and decorating it with the Wee Fairy Folk - finished off with jute twine which I plaited for a handle and then attached with more twine around the neck of the jar.
The tricky bit was stamping the images on to glass and embossing them - first go was no go - so went back to a Barbara Gray tried and trusted method of dusting with talc first - versamark and then fine detail black embossing powder. As the jar was hexagon shaped I had a steady surface but did find the jar got very hot so it was slow progress around each side!

Hope you like it!
