Time for another challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Sprit *

Yes it is that time again and where has this year gone to ... so very fast.  For this month I have altered a wine bottle and although it was one of my simpler ones I am really pleased with the result.

First I sprayed the bottle with a frosting spray I had bought and was very disappointed in it - rubbish but has served a purpose this tie.  I needed some tooth and it at least achieved that.  I then dabbed using a sponge some silkies type powder paint that has to be mixed up using a gel medium.  It gives a wonderful shimmer effect.  I used purple, pink and blue.

I had ordered some lace from China and was gobsmacked when it turned up - it was so wide I thought I would never find a project to use it on but hey I cut out all the bits I wanted to use as decoration for my bottle.  I love he effect so much so not only has it served as my DT piece for Rhedd's Creative Spirit but have used it as my banner on my Zibbet shop, KrafterZion.  Please head on over and take a look at Rhedd's Creative Spirit, join in and leave some love for the wonderful DT ladies, they are so fabulously talented.

Now for the pics including the one of the extremely wide lace.

Hugz to you all and can't wait to see your creations.
