Altered Bottle

OK - not the most imaginative title I know ! Does anyone else struggle for post titles ? Anyhoo - guess what - I've altered a bottle. A wine bottle to be exact, and yes I did have to force myself to make sure it was empty first although it is only a small 18.7cl bottle ! This was inspired by Craft Stampers current Take It Make it Challenge (the altering not the drinking) - 
I painted the bottle with Fresco finish Acrylic paint, then added a layer of Fresco Finish Crackle Glaze to the top half. While this was doing it's thing I stamped and coloured the Sheena Douglas (Creative Expressions) stamp onto tissue paper - I've coloured with water colour pencils.

Once the paint was dry I stamped Hero Arts polka dots and TH script onto the bottle before applying the tissue paper stamped image with Glue and Seal. Then it was just a case of finishing off with some lace, twine, a charm and roses.  
So as well as Craft Stamper Take it Make it I'm sharing my altered bottle here -
