Altered Bottle - Steampunk Owl


I altered an antique bottle for this project. The owl is a rubber stamp from Tim Holtz. The eyes and beak were colored with markers. I added some yellow paint directly to the bottle and then colored over it with oil pastels when the paint was dry. I added varnish to set all the colors. The bottle is embellished with rusty bits from the garage, spikes and a steampunk gear. The neck of the bottle was wrapped with twine.

I would like to enter this bottle in the following challenges:

A Step in the Dark - #9 steampunk
Left of Center - alter it+LOC
Suzy Bee's - #44 anything goes
Come and Get it - things with wings
Love to Scrap - #37 let's fly away
Simon Says Monday - bold
Through the Purple Haze (10) - #57 anything goes
