Altered bottle by Titbelsoeur

This is a small (approx. 15 cm high) altered bottle I chose to show you today. It comes from the Ukraine and in a former life it contained spicy vodka !
Today it is prominently exposed on my dresser, after a little refreshing ;-)

I started with a slight coat of gesso all over the bottle, but not regularly applied to obtain a crackled aspect.
After dried, I poured some liquid inks (Distress and other) on the gesso and mixed them with my fingers.
The Phineas Pinchbeck stamp was the exact size to replace the original label :

I stamped it with archival ink on a junk kraft envelope, cut it out and glued it on the bottle.

And it was soooo pleasant to take pictures in the back yard !!!

I hope you like my tiny bottle,

Thanks for stopping by, I am really looking forward to reading your comments !

A tout bientôt !
