Altered bottle.

I have always wondered how other fellow crafters manage to create and put all those creations on the blog. I am new to blogging though i have been crafting for sometime now...this whole process of loading and linking your work sounded too complicated and hence refrained from this...

I happened to see the
 and could not resist sharing my creation for the shabby is chic...topic!!
So here it goes...have been collecting old bottles for sometime now and when i got my prima doll stamp from Diecuts and more...came up with this lovely idea of altering the bottle with a tag!

Firstly colored the bottle with nice blue acrylic spray paint...and since it's shabby chic decided to go with lots of pinks, laces, bling and all girlie stuff!
Then took out all my laces from the stash,had a white one which i misted pink and added the black lace trim for the prima doll's hemline. Then went about coloring the doll in distress inks and cut out the dress form from pink patterned paper.All through this my 4yr old daughter was watching it...and was quite thrilled with the overload of pinks that was coming!

I stuck some pink bling on the hair band and realised that the other side of that bottle was empty and suddenly came up with the idea of adding "sister sentiment" to it. Who better than a sister will understand, though do not have one of my own have always been close to my cousins. So decided to dedicate this one to all of them!

I used the scalloped circle die and cut a circle on a tag so that it slips thru the neck of the bottle. Then stamped a sister sentiment which was also part of the purchase from Diecuts and more. I distressed the edges with pink micia inks and realised that once i pressed down the tag on the bottle it looked like a collared top! so added some pink buttons to it. I covered the base of the bottle with pink lace and stuck the stamp cut out with foam tabs,slipped a weather clock die cut behind the image too and made hugs and love,handwritten sentiments in pink paper , attached it to a pink string and stuck it.

Then coming to the top of the bottle...i used my Tim holtz tattered floral fie and some pink fabric that i had and made a flower with pearl centers and covered the top. So now my bottle was all shabby chic and pink from head to toe!

I loved doing this as mush as my daughter enjoyed watching the whole process. Hope you all enjoyed it too.
