Coral Flower Zipper Altered Bottle

Hello Makers!

For the month of March, Lindy's Stamp Gang the color challenge features beautiful corals, green and beige. I was so torn as to what I wanted to create because so many springy things came to mind, specially with the snow we've been having (at least in the east coast). So I created my very own spring flowers in a bottle, no message in it though. Unless, this piece speaks to you, lol! Hope you enjoy it.

How it's made

For this project I used all the colors from the Lindy's Stamp Gang March 2017 Spray Set. I started out by covering the entire bottle with white tissue paper and gluing the zipper. The top layer is wrapped in beautiful handmade paper (purchased from the art store), it's thicker and finer than the regular tissue and will stand up to the sprays really well. The bottle was colored with Merci Beaucoup Mint and Kissin' Kenickie Coral

The flowers are made of paper and were store bought. and used all the colors from March Spray Set.  The butterflies are made of paper; used copper wire for the antennas and dimension paint for the body and have been colored with Merci Beaucopu Mint, Cape Cod Coral and Clam Bake Beige sprays. The lace was colored with Cape Cod Coral. The stopper is a door knob that I got from the $1.50 bin at the craft store. The knob has a long screw. I screwed the knob into a cork and stuck it back into the bottle.
