Liquid Luck

I am showcasing the fabulous APOTHECARY plate this week with an altered tin.
I coloured my tin with ginger Alcohol Ink and then began layering my images inside the tin.  First of all I stamped the large poison bottle which I stamped onto Grungepaper and then coloured with vintage photo Distress Ink.  For added texture and interest I added Clear Rock Candy crackle and then blended more vintage photo into the cracks. The small bottle on the right is from Wendy Vecchi's Embellish Your Art embellishments, again coloured with Alcohol Ink and adding "potion" to the bottle which I inked with black soot Distress Marker as I just wanted this word in particular from the sentiment. I added some spirals of rusty wire to represent a warning bit like barbed wire as in danger!
I added the background receipt stamp to the back of my tin and also added the wire so that I could achieve different layers within the tin.  I added my gentlemen (the chemist mixing these potions) stamped with black Archival Ink and coloured with vintage photo ink.
I love all the bits and pieces of text and wording you get with this plate, perfect for layering and adding interest.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your week.
