Hello everyone! Today I am joining my fellow eP Design Team for our monthly Get Altered Challenge! This month, the lovely Sue, is our host, and she challenged us to alter a bottle!
I, unfortunately, don't have any empty bottles to alter (much to my dismay). However, my friend just celebrated her 40th birthday, and she's a wine lover. So, I created a Wine Tag for a bottle of wine that I will give her the next time our group of friends gets together!
So, how did I create this tag?! Let me share!!!!
The first thing I did was take a piece of 12" x 12" craft, and cut a 2" strip. Then, I folded the top over so that it could be reinforced and would prevent damage when hanging on the neck of the bottle. I punched a 1 1/4" circle for the hole (which fits perfectly!). Then, I started to get crafty!
I painted some gesso for a base. Then, I took my Climbing Vine stencil, sprayed it with Dirty Martini Dylusions spray, and then stamped it onto the tag. Then, I took my Wall Flowers stencil, and w/ Lavender, Guava and Banana Gelatos, I created the flowers. I sprayed the entire tag w/ water, and then used a paint brush to spread out the gelatinous medium to look smoother and less like a crayon!
I took the Mini Chicken Wire stencil (My all-time favorite stencil on earth!), and using a Silver Gelato, I added some texture and detail randomly.
I took a Recollections numbers stamp set and stamped the 4 and 0 w/ Milled Lavender Distress Ink. I cut it out, and then created a shadow layer out of the scrap Kraft c/s that was left over from cutting the tag. I sponged the whole tag and numbers w/ Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I added some flowers from Prima and Petaloo, and cut out some cupcakes from Authentique's Wishes stack. I added a rhinestone swirl for some glitz, and some lace to complete the tag!
Can't wait to see what everyone creates for this! Link up on the eP blog!!!!
Have a wonderful day!!!
