Victorian Bottle

Hi! Francine here again with my latest post and project. This month Altered Pages and IMAGINE Crafts are partnering.  What great projects everyone on the team has been creating. Today I decided to share an altered Victorian bottle.

This would make a lovely gift for any woman or keep it for yourself to decorate a part of your home.

Decoupage the bottle with Glitz Papers "French Kiss" from Altered Pages.  Then go over the papers with IMAGINE Crafts Pistachio and Peanut Brittle Ink  to give it a distressed look.

Embellish the bottle with fabric flowers, Sari Ribbon, leaves, trims, adhesive glue.  Add a rub-on that says "with all my heart".  I also added a little bit of gold seed beads.

You can see this is on the front and the third picture is the back.

I love making Victorian items, I had so much fun making this, keep your eyes out for more awesome goodies to come your way~

Supplies Used:
IMAGINE Craft/Tsukineko Memento Luxe pistachio
IMAGINE Craft/Tsukineko Memento Luxe Peanut Brittle
Glitz Paper 6" French Kiss
Sari Ribbon
Seed Beads

From my stash: Bottle, fabric flowers, leaves, rub-on, lace.
