Aurora Wings Challenge #60

Time for new challenge at Aurora Wings Challenge Blog.. Theme twist for this challenge is 'Recycled'.. 

Love this theme.. hihihi.. I choose to recycled this bottle.. *already a year pass without doing altered project hihihi*.. 

And choose to use Dark Goth Mermaid with a skull which you can find here.. colouring the gorgeous mermaid with Copic markers.. 

then varnished it with Studio Multi-Medium Gloss.. 

As for the bottle.. first I paint it with black acrylic paint (Reeves) then after it dry I add some graphit texture paste .. 

Then add skeleton dies cut out using Gina Marie Design.. 

Add more black acrylic paint to all surface.. after it dried.. add some prima metallic acrylic paint (Rusty Red) using my fingers.. already try using brush and sponge.. but the best look for me is to apply it using fingers :D 

Then put the gorgeous image on the center of the bottle.. 

And time for decorating.. I use the cute plastic skeleton hand toy, butterfly metallic filigree, chain, skeleton charms, and flowers from Len's Bloom.. paint all embellishment with black and/or rusty red paint.. and taraaaa here's my final project.. 

Don't forget to join the challenge.. it is a good chance for grabbing some gorgeous images from Mitzi.. And there's also a monthly challenge at Aurora Wings Facebook Group.. You can join the challenge or show off your project using Mitzi's images.. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today and for leaving sweet comment.. Till the next post then.. cyaaa..
