"Wings" Altered Bottle

Hi Gang!

Well if you are like me, once Christmas is over you may have one or two empty bottles laying around :0) xx

I thought to myself................ this bottle is crying out to be altered! So that's exactly what I did lol!

Here is the "before" bottle, you may recognise it!
I started with Tim Holtz alcohol inks, blending and building up the colours directly on to the bottle. I then used a momento ink pad and stamped a butterfly on the bottle.

I chose some Tim Holtz Harlequin grunge board and coloured with the same inks used on the bottle. I then randomly chose different diamonds on the grunge board to colour with a metallic paint. I then went a little Melt Pot mad! I love love love to use my melt pot. I picked some background stamps, some from my stash some new ones from The Artistic Stamper, and some molds. I love to add embellishments inside the melted embossing powder, it just added some thing different.

I added a chain around the neck and dangled a melt pot embellishment from it using a rangers frame. I then finished off the lid with bronze paint, stamping a match butterfly on top and adding more melt pot art.

Lastly I made the bottle a little more regal looking buy adding a few liquid pearl dots.

I hope you have enjoyed looking xxxxx I would love to hear your comments! xx
