Love Potion #9 By Carol fox


Using one of the lovely new Artistic Outpost plates, Apothecary I have altered a bottle to make a love potion bottle.
The bottle was coloured using Alcohol inks. I shaped some of the Filigree corners to fit around the base of the bottle glueing them to hold them in place. Once they were set in place I rubbed some Inca Gold over them.
I added charms, beads and chains to the bottle as shown.
Now for the yummy rubber stamps, I stamped the Witches potion image onto shink plastic, punching a hole and cutting it out just outside of the border before heating it, when shrunk I rubbed old paper distress ink over it. I attached it with a jump ring to the top of the charms.
I stamped the receipt image onto thin cream paper, adding the love potion #9 and the 60c images. I then inked the recipt with a pale yellow ink. I then screwed it up and inked it over the creases using old paper to give it a very aged and distressed look,like it had spent many years in a coat pocket.
Finally I added the love potion #9 image to a small tag to identify the contents of the bottle as it would never do to confuse the potion to win your true loves heart with a bottle of poison.

  1. Oooh this is fab, great idea bending and attaching the metal corners and the shrink plastic label is another great idea. But can I have the recipe for the love potion too please. LOL.X
