What's Your Poison?

The theme set this week by DT Maria on Stampotique Designer's Challenge wasn't one that I found easy.

Poison Bottle.



Hmmm...by the time I'd finished this, I was wishing it was full so I could take a swig rofl...I really struggled.

I had grand ideas of melting wax, stamping on glass...all sorts of things. But when it came down to it none would work for me, it just wasn't my thing, so I ended up making a bottle collar for a beautiful bottle I bought a few years ago.
Bottle collars are quite a nice idea I think if you are giving a bottle as a present, whether it be wine, spirits or bath bubbles, (not poison obviously) lol.



I used Splatter Blob, P from Amy's 'Altered Alpha' alphabet and Crown, all from Stampotique.

The challenge instructions can be found on the Stampotique Designer's Challenge site along with some fab inspiration from the Stampotique team. It might be just your sort of challenge, have a go and be in with a chance of winning $30 gift certificate.
