Happy New Year

Happy New Year! Wow it's 2016 already, where did last year go! It's also time for a new challenge at Country View Crafts and this month Brenda wants us to be inspired by bottles.
I confess I found this a really difficult challenge. I Googled altered bottles and scared myself silly! There are some really beautiful bottles our there.
My bottle was full of orange bubble bath - this is now sitting in a less than glamorous Ikea bottle.
It's been filled with been filled with black and silver glass chips.
All the stamps are by Stampotique, and the letter stickers are Tim Holtz's.
I hope you have a very Happy New Year and join in with our bottle challenge.
Thanks very much for looking x
