I thought I would have a little play with the new bottle stamp, and used a piece of mountboard as base which is actually an orangey red, so no inking there! I stamped up the dogstooth background in black archival ( I actually never use any other ink...hangs her head in shame, and slinks away.....), and taking the bottle stamp inked it in ..black archival. I used a mixture of orange and yellow distress inks to colour it up, with the minutest blue in the middle.
The words are computer generated and distress inked too.
I found these wonderful unused milk bottle tops in an antique shop, and just had to have them. I alcohol inked the top, and actually I poured the ink over it so I didn't crush it with the felt tool, mind you if you look closely , it did get crushed a little... Finally I added the drinking straw, orange , of course, and glued it all together. A smattering of rock candy crackle paint on the bottle and the words finished it off.
