Whats your tipple??
I picked up these cute china decanter labels from a chairty shop that have a litle floral deisgn around the edge and the spirits name in the middle.
I did think of leaving gin on one then I could just hold it up at the bar when I wear it :D but then thought that might look quite bad LOL :D
I coated them with clear gesso all over so that the flowers were still visible, then covered over the wording with white gesso.
When dry I inked them with my distress ink pads and stamped images in black archival ink.
I smothered them with versamark and gave them a coat of utee which I heated with my heat gun. While hot I sprinkled in more utee then sprinkled in Tim Holtz distress powders and cosmic shimmer embossing powder.
On the "Exist" one I stamped a butterfly stamp in to the hot utee to leave a de-bossed image, then highlighted it with a light dusting of perfect pearls.
I coated my metal embellies in versamark ink then dipped them in to my TH distress powders and heated.
Last but not least I added some bling and buttons to finish the pendants :D
I hope you like my altered items as much as I do, now do I sell or keep??? LOL :D
