Poison Bottle

I hope you are all having a fun and lazy Sunday, I am...
I wanted to enter the Stampotique Designer's Challenge, so I had a look at their theme and it happens to be poison bottle, so I had a quick look around for a suitable bottle and made this:






The bottle is made of glass, and in it's previous life contained mineral water, I just gave it a coat of matte medium, stuck some fusible webbing onto it, adding some Stickls to the mouth of the bottle, and then went to work on my sign.
I used Miss Snottie, stamping her 3 times and cutting out the image (paper-tole style) using foam tape between layers and adding colour with some wc pencils.    Did you notice the "stuff" she's throwing up?  yes, more Stickls, that's what it is, not a beard LOL.     I drew the bones onto thick card and added some puff paint (first time I've used it!) you paint it on, heat it with your heat gun and it magically puffs up...
And the "Rhubarb Leaves" sign?   I have a very vivid memory of being in high school (in home-eco class) and our teacher telling us that rhubarb leaves were very poisonous BUT the stalks were OK to cook and eat...I just thought, why would anyone one want to cook with it???
There's a couple of days left if you'd like to take part in this great challenge, so why not give it a go?
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, and as always, thank you for your visit, I hope I have inspired you to use your supplies and have some messy fun : )

Fab bottle - love the head and bones effect. I did know that about rhubarb leaves but had been growing and cutting it for years (with no apparent ill effects). I am a little more careful when cutting it now.
