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. 

Hop on over and take a wee look at what they have the sale ends on Sept 28th.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

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!

Craft Stamper November Challenge

Hey Friends Welcome to a new  Craft Stamper  challenge for November. Can you believe we are almost at the end of the year already!!  Where did time go?? It has been pretty cold and frosty up here in Scotland for the last few nights.   But I am hanging on to Autumn as long as I can. I took a wee walk around the park and collected some lovely Autumn leaves.  I wanted to incorporate them into my project today.  I put the leaves in some paper and put them inside a heavy book overnight to press them down.  I started off with a white card base and used this sentiment stamp from Unity and repeat stamped all down the side of my card using Potting Soil Archival Ink. Then I went around the edges with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink.  Next I took my leaves and my paper punches and punched a heart shape out from the yellow leaf and then stuck it to my card with fabric glue.  Then I punched some hearts from the red leaves and put one inside t

Hello Friends Welcome to my first day of my first ever GIU week yay!! I am super excited to be showing you my creations this week with the wonderful Unity stamps :)  I only found out last week I would be the GIU girl this week. I had to switch out my Dec date as I will be in Scotland another yay :) I have two cards for you today with this new stamp set from Unity. I absolutely LOVE dandelions. So when I saw this set I just had to have it. It is called Wish With Your Heart and it is on sale right now for $12 a bargain. I think today is the last day of the sale so if you like it go and grab it quick!! So for my first card I wanted to do another black and white card. I also wanted to use my black distress ink which I bought months ago and have never used. It is called Black Soot and funnily enough it gets everywhere just like the real black soot. I love getting messy with my distress inks and kind of expect a bit of a mess. But the black mixed with water gets EVE
