It's the first of the month and that means another challenge over at ALTERED ECLECTICS. Remember no ATCs, layouts, cards, tags or any other paper craft project, altered art only.
Here's my DT piece, an altered cider bottle.
In case you're wondering, I used most of the cider in a chicken pie and drank what was left. Well you have to, don't you?
I've used the fabulous Viva Decor Croco Crackle paint on this; the first time I've used it and I really like the finish. If you are using this on glass or other non-porous surfaces, you need to give the piece a coat of the Croco base paint or primer first. I chose Blackberry Croco Crackle for this which is a lovely deep purple colour. When dry I brushed a little of the Viva Precious Metal in silver randomly over small sections to add a bit more interest.
The flowers were made using the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge to die cut several layers which were covered with aged bronze and aged scarlet Fran tage. The leaves are a free stamp from the September 2011 issue of Craft Stamper Magazine, covered with aged teal Fran tage.
