Altered Glass Bottle

Hi friends, today I want to share an altered bottle I decorated with stamps, dies, and paper from Heartfelt Creations.  I recycled an olive oil glass bottle.  I started by adding some color with alcohol inks and a coat of crackle paint, I then applied a coat of mod podge to protect the crackle paint.
I decorated the front with an image from the patterned paper, some flowers, pearls and butterflies.
I covered the cap with some lace and adhesive pearls.  On the top I added a filigree flower and pearl.
Closeups of the flowers.
And here is a closeup of the color finish on the glass.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
