In a Pickle

These Pickle Jars just make me laugh. I stamped one and then masked it to make a row of jars. I colored with my Copic Markers and then coated with Crystal Lacquer for a glassy look, one jar is popped up to add some dimension. I trimmed two little pickles out to add below with the sentiment. I added a wee tiny bit of Spica on the pickles here and there, just for something to catch the light. Some little ribbon additions and done. Finished card is an A2.
