Hi there!
Very quick post.
Stampotique's Designers challenge is to make a Poison Bottle using only Stampotique stamps.

I started with this cute little bottle

While visiting my hubby in hospital I spied this empty milk bottle on his tray and thought of this challenge. Luckily I was able to grab five minutes here and there to create this

I stamped 'Mr Stripes' onto white tissue (from napkin) in black Stazon ink.
Tore around image and applied to bottle with Liquitex. I stamped the spider again on scrap white card in Stampin Up Real Red ink. I then cut out the red striped body and paper pieced over the first image.
Word 'Poison' was simply written on masking tape with black pen and the 'x' with red pen. Stuck masking tape to bottle. Painted and dabbed on colour with black dabber paint and red Viva Precious Metal paint.

Thanks for visiting!
