Gifts at Eclectic Ellapu

Good morning folks, it's time for our new challenge at Eclectic Ellapu and this month the Pink Team's theme is 'Gifts' so you can make a gift, use an image with a gift or as I've done use a gift . I've used an empty bottle to create my project and had lots of messy fun altering it.

I began with a coat of matte medium and then applied lots of rock candy crackle paint and a sprinkle of glamour dust. Once that was dry I dripped on alcohol inks in shades of blue and green. I stamped the images using Lavinia stamps and blue versafine ink onto tissue paper and adhered it to the bottle using more matte medium. I glued some pearl string around the image.

I used ribbon to cover the top of the bottle and used hot glue to attach a sparkly door knob to the top of the bottle. To finish off I've added a beaded tassel, some more pearls and a pretty button.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Deep Ocean: things with wings
Fussy and Fancy: Let's fly away
My time to craft: something that flies
Simon Says Stamp: Anything goes
Sweet Stampin: no designer paper
That's Crafty: Get cracking

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
