Here are the colors for this week's challenge:

The canning jar is stamped twice, once on Whisper White Cardstock and a 2nd time on Vellum Cardstock. Using the Whisper White Cardstock layer, I very very lightly touched the tip of the ink with a Blender Pen and added some shading by dragging the color around the edges:
