ePlay challenge - Altered Bottles

It's that time again! Everyone ePlay!

This month's challenge is altered bottles. 

Bottles are so much fun and when you drink as much wine as I do...well...there's never a shortage of bottles to alter.

I was obsessed not too long ago and came up with this beauty:

Lots and lots of found objects, charms, and gel medium. I used Luminarte primary elements in order to make a home made mist for the all over color of the bottle.

There was really a lot going on there. HAHAHA

This time I decided to change my altering from a bottle to a wine glass...I'm altering the challenge a bit;)
I had a couple of my crafty girfriends over and we drank and altered wine glasses. For this one I used Silks glazes in the following colors:

I first had to cover the glass in gesso

I then used Viva Decor 3D stamp paint to stamp the image on the glass using my Tim Holtz Damask stamps.

For the bottom I used E6000 and Sprinkled Distress glitter in antique linen.

I hope you are inspired to make an altered bottle of your own. Make sure you post your link on eP for your chance to win a gift certificate to the eP store.
