This may take a bit of imagination here for some of you more straight laced people (not saying any names mind you), but I started out with a coat of gesso, then colored the chipboard with Distress Inks, stamped the top part with this cool cog bg stamp, added more gesso to tone it down some, and then flicked some water here and there to get a mottled look. These stamps have been creatively used several times, and I really had to come up with something a little different, that's how this all came about. I used Artistic Stamper stamps, added some Ranger cogs, some watch parts...The Artistic Stamper have got the best little packets of them, and added the rest of the stuff from my stash, aging with Distress EP. The bottle was colored slightly with pencils, then I added Distress Stickles on top. I hope I got you to think out of the box a little today, lol....you never know where your imagination may take you. (I usually land up on the 7th floor, in a padded room, all alone...can you imagine that! lol).
