two challenges in one....

..... which is a total record for me, I know lots of people manage to make one piece fit many current challenges, but it makes my brain hurt to try that.  This has happened by accident, first it is my entry for Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 31, which is following the technique on page 41, rusted enamel.  A technique I've tried before and enjoyed using, so by pure coincidence I put an Octopode Factory image on of Alice (check out her giveaway), and there is a current challenge at The Altered Alice using Alice and things that change form, and if Alice has a drink from that bottle she certainly will change.

I tried using lots of different techniques on here, I tried stamping on my embossing folder before embossing, and I used Tissue tape for the first time, took me ages to get round to spending £9 on some tissue tape, but it is yumptious stuff, also made a lid out of ten second metal.

Siobhan, this is DARLING! I love how you used the rusted enamel technique on the bottle-- BRILLIANT! The Alice stamp is fabulous! I love the look on her face. This entire design is fabulous, from the embossing to the tissue tape to the bright pink accents. Great job!
