Milk Bottle Butterfly



Hello my lovely friends

I hope you are having a great weekend :) 

I am back with another make using the fantastic Visible Image stamps. 

I am also using the same stamp set as last time because I love it so much!!

 This is the stamp set I worked with it is called Butterfly Beginnings





I love to paint bottles and stamp on them so this is what I did with this lovely butterfly.

I had an empty milk bottle I had around the house so I just use what I have on hand.

I like to use chalk paint to paint my bottles as I love the texture of it.

 I prefer this kind of paint as it does not peel off your jar and you do not need to prep your bottle.

Here are the steps to make your own bottle

1. Paint your bottle and leave to dry. I usually paint two coats of paint. Chalk paint dries pretty fast!

2. Then take your stamp and some archival ink and stamp on to your bottle.
 I like to stick my stamp to my desk and just roll my bottle over it. 
From one end to the other using firm pressure.

3. Take some sand paper or a nail file and rub off the areas you want to look distressed. 

4. Tie some twine and your done :) 

If you want you can also seal it but I like to leave mine with just the matt chalk look.

  They are so easy to make and would make lovely gifts for Christmas :)
