I had two green medicine bottles in my stash, and I altered them with some of my new Tim Holtz Halloween goodies I picked up in Charlotte over the weekend. I apologize for the blurry photos, but these are tiny and I had to zoom in with nothing to use but my I phone.
I aged the bottles using Tim Holtz Faux Cracked Glass technique and highlighted the cracks with alcohol inks in Teakwood, Mushroom and Copper Mixative. The lids were also colored with alcohol inks. The gunk you see on the smaller lid is some Distress Crazing I had left drying on my brush from another project I was working on-perfectly icky!!
I tore a few "witches" from Tim's Regions Beyond paper stash, colored them with Distress inks and markers and gave them hats from Tim's Gothic Remnant Rubs. I highlighted the hats with my Recollections opaque marker to have them show up against the dark background and then toned them down again using Frayed Burlap ink. I smeared on Platinum Stickles for a little extra magic.
I aged some pieces from Tim's Curiosities Ephemera pack as well as more rub ons from the Curiosities pack this time, to decorate further. I made some disgusting ooze from gel medium to run down the sides.
Just to show how tiny these bottles are I took a few shots in my alcohol ink stained hand and next to our garden spider. I actually had to put my hand down into his 3D web to get this shot! Eeewww! (The bottles measure 2.5 and 3 inches tall.)
I would like to enter my bottles in the following inspiring challenges:
