Art Bottle

This is a simple whiskey bottle reincarnated as a vase. I painted it first with gesso so it would hold the acrylic paint. Then I painted it with a golden yellow, orange-red and some gold. After it dried, I stamped it with some heart images and embossedthe stamped areas with a copper colored and a green colored embossing powder. Later, I created a little wire doo-dad for the neck of the bottle. You can barely see that here.

I spent forever at Michaels today trying to find the perfect silk flowers to add to this creation. I'm proud of it. I put it on my dining room table.
