Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 14 October 2016

Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "HALLOWEEN/SOMETHING SPOOKY".

This week the Blog Design team have been challenged to "use die-cuts" so here is my inspiration post with this theme.
I decided to make a piece of altered art.  I painted an empty wine bottle with Imagination Crafts Starlights blue and silver paints.  I then added some Dutch Doobadoo texture paste through a Dutch Doobadoo stencil and left to dry.  I then dabbed over the blue Starlight paint over the raised area.  The Starlight paints gave the bottle such a sparkle.

The Ching-Chou Kuik image I have used is called "The Serene Night" and I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and fussy cut out.

For the die-cut elements of the challenge I have die-cut lots of handmade flowers, shells and greenery and I have stuck these on and painted with Starlight paints.

I have finished the bottle off with some decorative silver mesh, organza ribbon bow, pearls and dew drops. 
Here is what the back of the bottle looks like.
