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 :) 

Speaking of Christmas Visible Image have 25% off of there Christmas stamps.

Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog . Hope to see your project

Unity & Misti Blog Hop

Hello My lovelies :) Welcome to the Unity and Misti blog hop! I  hope you are enjoying seeing all of the projects so far. I just had my first wee play with the Misti tool the other day. It is a very new to me tool and wow do I LOVE it!! It is awesome! Just for the simplest of things like positioning a stamp.  One time is all you need with the Misti!! I am not one of those crafters that gets my stamped images crisp first time. I usually have wasted a card or two before I end up with a perfect image. This tool totally eliminates all of that.  Here is my very first card that I made with the Misti tool and Unity stamps.  I used a stamp called  Scattered Pieces . I LOVE this stamp and the sentiments that come with it.  I positioned the feather and the sentiment at the same time on the Misti.  I totally love that you can do that too!  It lets you stamp several at once instead of just eye balling it and hoping it works out!
