Hi All. Today we have frost and rain so something a bit different from just rain. Thank you for your visit and I hope you like what you see this time.
At Country View Crafts the challenge theme is Inspired by Bottles which definitely caught my eye and fueled my imagination.
Here is my ornate bottle which started life as -------
This plastic bottle
I gave the bottle a thick coat of PVA to start with then when it was dry I gave it a very thick coat of caulk that I found in the shed. Not sure what it is supposed to be used for but it only costs £1 for a big container so it can be used liberally and dries to a good finish -it does take a few days to dry properly. The piece of card in the middle was added first and was a piece of a pre-cut box shape I bought from Create and Craft many years ago-there were loads of them with the offer and I gave most of them away. I dabbed Distressed ink lightly here and there on the caulk. Everything else you can see and the wonderful flowers were sent to me by Valerie at Christmas.
Tag Tuesday have Ornate as the theme this week
Many years ago I bought some stamps with no maker's name. It just said Ornate Stamps so I guess this is a good place to use one of them. I stamped it several times and inked it in various colours. I also have a set of ornate letters which are awful to use as they wobble about on the soft rubber on which they are mounted. One of these days I will take the stamps from the backing to make them easier to use.
Have a Great Day
Love Chrissie xx
