A New Challenge Blog....Lots to Do

Challenge blogs keep me going, and I was happy to find a new one today:  Lots to Do.  Very often, they make me stretch to create something I wouldn't think up on my own.   Alcohol inks are quite familiar to me, however, and one of my favorite projects is to turn a plain glass bottle into a rich looking one. This little (4 1/2") bottle started out as part of  a reed diffuser set; it held the fragrant oil.   Alcohol inks, metallic gold pen, gold webbing spray dramatically changed the looks of the Plain Jane glass.  For a topper, I whittled down the cork from a wine bottle and cut it in half before applying metallic gold ink.
