Pink Perfume

I have a little altered perfume bottle to share with you today and I shall be linking this up for this week’s City Crafter Challenge Blog challenge which is flowers and lace.


This started life as a (Marks & Spencer’s) perfume bottle. I covered it with muslin/cheesecloth and lace, leaving the centre panel, which was where the original label is, plain. I added a cluster of paper roses in one corner and a large rose in the neck of the bottle.


Once the glue was (almost) dry, I am impatient, I gave it a couple of coats of white acrylic paint. Again, a little wait whilst that dried and then I randomly applied some pink pearl paint.


I’ve added a little chunky glitter here and there and some pearl strands for a subtle bling effect.


Centre stage is a Hero Arts butterfly that I stamped onto a scrap of pale pink paper and added pearls to its body.


I dithered about whether to have charms and beads hanging from the neck of the bottle but decided against it and instead made a little label. This was a small white tag label and I stamped the word in Iced Spruce distress stain and then added just a tiny smidge of Worn Lipstick around the edge. I wish I had a teeny-weeny butterfly stamp to add to the tag just to finish it off.




Thanks for buzzing by.

  2. This is gorgeous! I love all the feminine lace and pearls and the butterflies are perfect. That chunky glitter looks awesome, the first thing I noticed too, it was like wow, that looks awesome! ~Diane
