Shabby/Chic Button Jar!

Hello to all.  I have some fabulous clear plastic jars which hold my buttons. 
 They looked a bit bare sitting on the shelf, so I have added some fun shabby/chic detail.
They look so pretty now!

List of materials used for this project:
Stamp Perfect Peony - Crafter's Companion
Spectrum Noir AquaBlend pencils.
Watercolour card, kraft card and Sara Signature Shabby/chic papers all from Crafter's Companion.
Lace, ribbon and little flowers from my stash.

The jar was full of sweets and given to my DH.
 This and several others were emptied over a period of time.  
They make perfect containers for my button collection.

The image was stamped onto watercolour card and painted with the AquaBlend pencils.  Distress Ink was applied.   
The topper was mounted onto layers of kraft card and designer paper.  
I put a ribbon tie between the watercolour and kraft laters. 
Decoration was added with a die cut flower and butterfly.

The metal lid was softened with layers of kraft card and designer paper.  
Lace was added round the edge of the lid. 
A decorative bow with butterfly was added.

Happy crafting fun to all!
