Decoupage on Bottle

Hi Friends,

Today I have come up with one more craft. This is the empty bottle is used for decoupage. I wanted liquor empty bottle but had no chance in getting here in my town. Its not a good idea to search for wine bottle so have to use medicine syrup bottle.

Well I love decoupage a lot after seeing the result, I am just loving it.

Here material used is all from Itsybitsy and Find Stuff (From Facebook) Thanks for the wonderful supply.

Material Used:-
(Material from ITSYBITSY)
Decoupage Paper
Little Embossed paper flowers
Mod Podge

(Material from Find Stuff)
Green Valvet Leaves
Rose Flowers
Stone Patti/Line

(Material from Crafters Corner
Folk Art Paint
Modpodge Brush and
Lindy's Stamp Gang 

The steps are very simple. I have used Modpodge to wrap the bottle. The pictures are easy to follow.

Suggestion/My Experience:-

I have used jute and the effect is too good but make sure you have patience to complete. It is very difficult to work on jute. It absorbs all sort of paints and you don't see any results. I was finding it difficult to even using modpodge, difficult to stick the jute. and I have used lots of Sprays and Paints, Gesso to gain the effect. I have used modpodge.

Thanks for stopping by. If you like my post please join and suggest your friends to join the same.

Shaker Card -April Special

Hey all,

I have made this beautiful card for one of my Birthday Club friend. This was my first attempt on circle shaker card. This die was very difficult for me to buy as it was always out of stock.

It was an experiment for me on this card I was really trying very hard to understand the technique and finally landed up cutting many card.

I loved the Sequins from Craft Medley. I have awesome 2 pailettes. Will add more to the store. Please leave your review and I want some easy way of doing this.
