Love Potion

An altered perfume bottle for this week's Playdate Cafe Challenge.






My empty perfume bottle was heart shaped, and the colours this week are blue, pink, burgundy and crimson.  Seeing as it's almost Valentine's Day I thought I'd stick with a romantic theme.

I used Glimmer mists on tissue paper and stamped it with Plum, Crimson and Teal Archival inks using Elusive Images Damask Hearts and Swirls stamps.

The three-toned ribbon was in my stash.

I covered a die-cut heart with music paper, stamped "love" and added some lace and a dried flower to use as my tag.

I'm very pleased with my flower - have tried to dry them before without much success, but now I know how to do it properly thanks to a course I am doing at the moment, but I will post more on that in a few weeks when my course is finished.

Thank you for looking. X
