Altered Glass Bottle with Alcohol Inks and Prima!

Hi all Dear blog readers!

How are you all today? Had a great weekend? When I am writing this blog post, I am in Sweden teaching classes and having loads of fun with some lovely Swedish ladies! :D I will write more about all that when I get back home again, so please check back soon for updates from my trip.

But first now I wish to share a altered bottle I made for CHA. It's an old liqueur glass bottle with silver cap that I found in a antique store for a cheap piece of money.
So, I brought it home and started to play on it with Ranger Alcohol Inks to add some colors too it. I dripped alcohol inks (in 3 different green colors) in the bottle opening and down on the insides of the bottle while holding the bottle down in a pretty flat angle to give the ink a chance to dry on its way down to the bottom.
Then I embossed the front of the bottle with a Prima stamp and Ranger Tea Dye embossing powder. It is pretty fun to play with stamps and embossing powder directly on to glass bottles! From here it was ready to be decorated after desire, where I decided to add Prima Vintage Trinkets (metals) with crystal and pearl hanging down from the silver cap.


On the front of the bottle I used one resin window, "Old Church Window" from my new line with Prima, the Shabby Chic Resin Treasures, as a main design on the front. Then I added a Prima butterfly, chipboard journal, a piece of a Say-it-in-Crystals and a rose and beautiful new branch!



Then I found, as the very last step, some old vintage book sheets that I curled together and added a piece of cord around, before I dropped them down into the bottle. That's it, as simple as that! ;O)

And here are a few close-ups ;O)


Today I also wish to share two photos of my daughter I took of her last week.


My happy little girl grows up so fast! Where did time go? When did she actually grew up? She is 4,5 years now, turns 5 in November! My happy little sunshine, I feel I just gave birth to her, remember the first time I did hold her in my arms as it was yesterday, and she is 5 soon! 
I am so proud of who she has become, the amazing little (big) girl she is, how she makes everyone around her happy, and how she always wish everyone well and all the best, the BIG heart she has.. - I am so proud of you Iselina! <3 Mum

Hei Ingvild!
For en nydelig flaske og en super ide!
Tusen takk for en herlig dag på lørdag, jeg har sjelden vært så inspirert og følte at jeg lærte utrolig mange nye måter å se ting på.
Din datter er usannsynlig vakker og ser virkelig ut som en solstråle!

Kjempetøff flaske, men altså - jeg falt helt for støvlene til Iselina jeg :D Er det Dr Martens? Eller noe annet som finnes i voksenstr og? :P Og ja, årene med de små går ALT for fort :p

DarLinda said...

Ingvlid, I love the bottle it's lovely. I would love it even more if you could use it for more than a decoration. With the economy as bad as it is we need the things we spend money on to have a real use.

Teresa said...

This is just beautiful and I love the way you used the inks and put on the embellishments and your daughter is adorable and you should be a very proud mom :)
Thanks so much for sharing with all of us.....
