Alice In Wonderland Altered Bottle

The glass bottle has had a layer of multi medium applied to it before a coat of clear viva crackle was added to it, when this was dry I alcohol  inked over it and its given it a lovely aged look.
I did have real problems getting the wire hearts to attatch to it. In the end I had to resort to winding them around the handle, I am not really happy with how this looks and it maybe one of those things I rip apart again to have another go at. It also needs something else but at the moment I cannot see what it is. But as I have been faffing with it on and off for a few days between other projects, and I wanted to enter it into the simon Says stamps and show challenge, and it ends this evening, so this is it for now, warts and all.
The little wire hearts were inspired by something I saw on my friend Julie's blog.

Love this bottle Carol, you have obviously been having fun with it. I like the little hearts on it and the hanging key and the crackle has worked perfectly.
Hope you have had a good weekend.

Carol, I love your whimsical Alice in Wonderland altered bottle! It is so cute and what a perfect tribute to that story. I love how you did your hearts! They look great coming from the handle on wrapped wire! Very cute idea and great design! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

Fab bottle! I like the old crackling effect- I've not tried that myself. Is it difficult? It's great how you can re-use glass in so many ways, I'm working on somethings myself, but I got distracted with other crafts, but seeing this I'd like to get back to my glass...hopefully soon!

It's brilliant - and I love the crackle effect and the hearts.

It you think something is missing - how about the Mad Hatter's head on the front higher up from the label just where it thins out?

Or Alice herself?

It looks great to me how it is though
