Wynona Witch (with Cooking Pot Basket) by Conie Fong

Hi dear peeps!  Today, I am happy to share my altered liquor bottle project, as DT for Conie Fong, which I made for Conie's monthly Facebook challenge.  This month's theme is "Anything But a Card".  
I love altering liquor bottles and this was so much fun to make.   This is a long post, so here goes:

This is the bottle before I altered it:

After removing the labels and cleaning it with rubbing alcohol, I applied a coat of gesso.  Then, I painted the entire bottle with orange acrylic paint.  I lightly sponged red acrylic paint over the orange areas.  Next, I sponged on some purple acrylic paint around the perimeters of each side.  Once they were dry, I applied a coat of matte Mod Podge over the entire bottle to seal it. 

Then, I added the image and the other die cuts around the bottle.  The image is coloured with Copics and Polychromos pencils.  I drew the background fence.  Finally, I applied Mod Podge to the image and the die cuts.  Here are more views:

The spider is raised with 3-D foam dots and I added Swarovski crystals for its eyes.

OK, now I'm done - LOL!  Until next time.  Hugs, Lori xx
