Steampunk Octopus Jar

I used a rubber stamp from Inkadinkado to create this altered glass jar. I stamped the design onto a page torn from a damaged book that I had painted with gesso and yellow acrylic paint first. I used mod podge to attach the paper punched circle to the jar. Steampunk gears and cogs were added as embellishments.

I would like to enter this altered jar in the following challenges:

Crafting by Design - anything goes
A Step in the Dark - #4 anything goes
Left of Center - #34 loc+metal
Suzy Bee's - #34 anything goes
Glitter & Sparkle - #90 add some yellow
Simon Says Monday - product you should use more of (mod podge)
The Sailing Pineapple - #8 repurpose it
Oddball Art Stamps - alter it
Artistic Inspirations - anything goes
