Spiced Treat - Bottle Art

hello friends, standing on the last day of the month I have a quick post on another bottle that I upcycled. This one is a little different.

I have used an old bottle, used hot water to remove the label. Later I used gesso to apply a base coat.

Used 4-5 color twines to wrap around the bottle. You can use normal glue/tacky glue for the same.

Below is the look it has.

I wanted something for the kitchen or the dinning space and hence used coffee beans, cloves and some spice from my kitchen inventory.

Used Prima flower and black pepper for the buds. Later I used star anese to add the last line.

Trust me it was such a fun project and I loved making this.

Hope you all like it. I have loads of stuff coming soon so stay tunes.

Oh yes and do participate in the giveaway here to have loads of embellishments for your kitty.

Below is the giveaway prize, dont forget to subscribe.

XOXO, see you at the next blog!

Bottle Decor

Hello Crafty peeps, hope this finds you in good health. We are already in the last leg of the month and I am excited I have a giveaway going on in my blog!

This is the first time I am trying my hands in decorating a used bottle to use as a home decor. My sister helped me wrap the twines and I have many left bottles already wrapped by the way :).

So here's the first look.

I have used jute twines to wrap the bottle. Used Heartfelt Creation Botanical Rose die for the flower ( which I cant do without ) :) :) :).

Later I used some Lace to make the bow. for the based on which I used twigs and flowers to decorate.

The brads that I have used for my flowers are 3 years old and finally I got to use them. :)

I am loving the way it has turned out and I am out to make some more so coming more soon.

Hope you like, do share your comments.

Yes to celebrate the success of my page, my little craft endeavor I wanted to thank each one of you for their support and appreciation. Please visit HERE to enter the giveaway. And thank you all who already commented and entered the giveaway.

Hello Everyone, hope this finds you in your crafty space. Today I have a very simply card to share however I had fun creating this one.

I love water coloring and specially since I have found the perfect papers for water coloring.

  • Today I used a Peek-a-boo stamp set and used one of the flower bunch to water color.
  • I stamped it three times with Archival black ink and colored using luna water color pencils.
  • Later I fussy cut all three stamped images. I also made some extra leaves to add dimension.
  • Used a Neenah Solar CS for my card base and using distress ink made a background using another stamp from the same collection.
  • In order to add a sentiment I used a Die-namics die " Hugs" which comes  within a heart. I chipped off the border and used the word only.

So here we go with the card below.

Hope you like it and do leave some comments.

I am entering the card in the below challenges:
