I have a feeling they're getting sick of me on the Halloween board, so since these bottles are mostly paper, with a few metal charms, I thought I'd post them over here for a change. These are chipboard bottle blanks from Alpha Stamps, all done up for Halloween. I love the background paper I used. The image on it is muted green flowers, but to me it looks like bubbly poison.


Here are some larger pics of the individual bottles. I think my favorite part of these bottles is the metal-looking flourishes I used as "fumes". I purchased these a while back, knowing they'd come in handy sometime. I never dreamed they'd be used for bottle art!






I also really love the labels. They were all cut from a piece of scrapbook paper. I have stocked up big time on it, because I love how old the labels look. I also used bits of this paper in the trick or treaters on spools I posted at the beginning of the month.
Man, I love October. Halloween crafting has to be my favorite!

OK, too weird. When I went to post my final thread (which included pics!) it said I'd already posted. Dangit.

These are great!  I think the background paper looks potion-y too!

Love these bottles. When I saw the thumbnail I thought they were real bottles! How cool a swap would be to do different kinds of apothecary bottles. Wink
