July ePlay Challenge - Alter a Bottle

Today I'm the host (for the first time!) of the July eclectic Paperie Blog - ePlay Challenge - and my challenge to everyone is to alter a bottle - glass, plastic, big or small -  take it from plain to WOW!  You have the whole month of July to play along - and if you link up your project you could win a $25 gift certificate from owner Kim - the eclectic Paperie store!

Here is the bottle I altered
and here is how I made it  'WOW'!
 I added some blooms from my garden to my pretty little vase -  Goldenstar and Dianthus.

To see just how I made this beautiful transformation -  please check out my post at the eclectic Paperie blog here.
Here's what I used:
Paper:  Idea-ology Paper Stash 8"x8" Collage
Ink:  Ranger Distress Salty Ocean, Mustard Seed, Gathered Twigs, Adirondack Alcohol Inks Stonewashed, Rust, Lettuce and Alcohol Blending Solution
Accessories:  Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi Silver Embossing Paste and Crackle Texture PasteIdea-ology Fragments/Charms, Linen Ribbon, Industrious Stickers/Borders; Glossy Accents, ScorTape.

Wohooo just went through the tutorial, this is some thing that I have to try, I have a few wine bottle lying for a project I had in mind but not sure if this technique works same on a colored bottle too ?
Your creations are so inspiring :)
