I wanted to make another bottle for the take it make it challenge over at the Craft Stamper blog. Since I loved making the last once so much I thought I would enter another one with hours to spare before the challenge closes no pressure :) I went with another butterfly theme :) I wanted to make floating butterflies so I used one of my favourite stamp sets called A Friend Loveth and some fishing line. I stamped the images using Versafine Black Onyx and sponged some Spiced Marmalade Distress ink on to them. Once they were dry I cut them all out.
Next I used fishing wire and glued both of the butterflies back to back to each other. I then coloured the bottle lid with a black sharpie. I pierced a hole in the top with a cork screw, then fed the wire through the top and glued another small butterfly to the lid to hold down the wire.
Next for the sentiment at the bottom of the bottle I used another stamp called Your Wings Exist I thought this sentiment was perfect for my project.
~ Your wings exist all you have to do is fly ~
I cut each word out individually and pasted them around the bottom of the bottle with a another smaller butterfly.
I initially put in some shredded paper for grass in the bottle but it did not look right. I did not have time to buy artificial grass so I decided to use real grass instead.
You know how much I love my butterflies so I was so pleased with the outcome of this project. I just LOVE it! It is so easy to make and would be a great project for children or adults who love butterflies :)
Thanks so much for stopping by I hope you like my butterflies in a bottle :) xox
