Love Potion No 9

Love Potion No 9 Altered Bottle
One of my first projects as a member of the Gecko Galz Design Team!!!

I chose to alter a bottle using Gecko Galz New Digital Kit Club Products!!
You can find them @ the Gecko Galz Etsy Shop!

Potion Bottle was created using Gecko Galz Love Potion No 9 Digital Label, Heart Stamp, and Love Ticket.
I first colored the labels with a blue marker, and added some pretty blue stickles.
 Applied a blue crochet lace (adhesive trim) to frame the Love Potion No 9 Label.
A couple pieces of mesh ribbon material was applied using Mod Podge to adhere it to front & back of bottle. (Any excess along the neck area was cut off).
 A small strip of cream lace was added, around bottle's center.   
While waiting for everything to dry...
I embellished the cork lid, applying Mod Podge to adhere a tiny piece of netting, lace trim, and crochet piece, topping it off with a blue paper rose using a hot glue gun.

I threaded a metal heart through the beige tulle and mesh ribbon material, tying it around the bottles neck. Embellishing with a bit of the adhesive blue trim, blue rose, and a 2" stick pin to adorn the neck of bottle.

Finished the front with a pink paper rose & love ticket!

The back of bottle was made, using the digital heart stamp, (colored & glittered), a small piece of crochet, blue rose, clear button, and cut pearl piece trim to finish this Love potion No 9 bottle!
