This week we'd like to challenge you to use bottletops. As you can see here they're very versatile (although I confess to having only recently discovered them) ...
They make excellent frames - as in my assemblage where I used one on the back wall, and Linda used one to make this very pretty charm.
What I didn't realise at first is that they work better if you flatten them, so once I discovered I could do that in my Big Shot I was away! You can use alcohol inks to colour them, or metallic paints or permanent markers, there are endless possibilities. If you have a one inch circle punch this fits perfectly inside a bottletop!!
So over to you and can't wait to see the wonderful things you always come up with.
Give Me a Sign Showcase
Here are your fabulous signs - there was such a great response to this and it was very interesting to read your explanations. Thank you as always for joining in and providing such wonderful inspiration.
