February challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit *

Hello everyone
It is challenge time over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and for my project this month is an altered perfume bottle.  Firstly apologies for the quality of the before photo - worse than I thought but I think you can make out what it was like.

I believe it is an Yves San Laurent bottle
Anyway I used Silkies type paint which you mix powder with binding pase and dabbed various rich colours until I achieved the effect I wanted.   
Now for the pics

I used various metal filigree embellishments some of which I trimmed, small corners for the lid.
 I used pale pink inka gold over the metal to make it pop and I love the look. 
To finish off lots of red gems  I used glossy accents to stick everything to the bottle which also secured the lid. 

Thank you for dropping by and whyt not head on over to Rhedd's Creative Spirit to join in with the fun challenge this month which is always anything goes as long as it is altered or mixed media -NO CARDS OR PAPERCRAFT PLEASE
Hugz always
