Stempelglede DT - Altered Tea-light Bottle

 Good morning!  I'd like to share another altered bottle with you today that I made for a friend who loves turquoise.  I found this tea-light bottle in my local supermarket and thought it would be perfect to alter.  It was already this gorgeous turquoise so no need for home made alcohol inks this time round.
 I used the Butterfly Collage stamp from Postcard from Paris and embossed it in bronze.  The butterfly was again made with coffee filter paper and the Butterfly stamp from Vintage Baby.  I have painted it with Broken China Distress Ink to match the bottle.
 I also embossed the French Script stamp from Postcard from Paris around the bottom of the bottle.  The beautiful lace is from The Ribbon Girl and so is the resin frame around the cameo.
 I also used the French Script stamp on the neck of the bottle.
 The cameo is one I made myself with Fimo and a cameo mould.
 I made the large flowers from coffee filter paper and Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.
 The poppies are from Live & Love Crafts and I have wired them together and made tiny leaves from some green cheesecloth.

 Here's a closer look at on the side of the bottle...
 ...and a side view.
 As you can see the bottle came with a hanging chain and you can see in this photo that there is a battery operated tea-light in the bottom - so pretty!
I hope you like it and thanks for looking.  Enjoy your Monday!
