Here is an altered poison bottle just ready for Halloween. The bottle started life as one of those reed air fresheners and I liked the shape for this project.
I gave it a good wash and when completely dry liberally coated the inside with splashes of alcohol in in red pepper, denim & raisin added directly from the dispenser and moved around the bottle to mix and obtain a splashed and dripped finish in the bottle. Once happy with the effect I set about doing a spot of embellishing.
I stamped a clear stamp from PinkPaislee onto magenta printed paper with Archival black ink to make a label. Trimmed this out and then distressed the edge with sandpaper and black soot Distress Ink applied on cut'n'dry foam. This was further coloured with a lime green souffle pen before sticking in place on the bottle with Glossy Accents. Some magenta crystals were stuck onto the top and bottom of the label.
I then made a tag by cutting down a white tag into a sort of coffin shape and colouring with crushed olive and bundled sage Distress Stains. The tag was dried, edged with black soot Distress ink and stamped with another of the PinkPaislee stamps in Archival black. The tag was threaded through with some magenta silk woven thread and put aside.
Next I did the cork which I coloured with a few coats of the crushed olive Distress Stain. I topped this with a lime brad and eyelet stuck into the top of the cork. The fibres (made from silk sari ribbon in yellow and lime green) were threaded with black AB beads, separated by tied knots. The bottle was then embellished with the tag and the fibres tied round the neck of the bottle.
