A closeup of the lemonade. I used the jar stamp and just inked up the bottom curves with a marker, stamped it off on scrap paper then stamped the upside down on my paper. Stamped the jar over that. Very simple and the faint lines give the lemonade the proper detail to look three dimensional.

Perfectly Preserved Orchard Harvest
I have been playing with some new toys - the Perfectly Preserved stamp set, Orchard Harvest paper and Cannery Set framelits. So much fun! I found lots of cute ideas from other demonstrators - and made them in my own way.
Another bug one - lightning bugs in a jar. Remember when..... those were the days. We caught lightning bugs and put them in the freezer because we wanted to send them in to the local TV station for medical research. Not sure that was even legitimate. I do know that fluoroscein (sp?) is used in some laboratory testing and they may have used the fluorescent chemicals from the bugs before there was a synthetic product. Outs never made it anywhere except the trash I 'm sure.
