5 Green Bottles Standing on a Wall!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi all, at last I have managed to get inky, I'm starting to feel like crafting again and it's great lol.  Last night I decided to swoosh some distress stains around on a tag, now I haven't used my stains before so this was rather new lol.  After some distress stains, distress ink and some spray I had finally got a background I liked lol.

Before I show some pictures I would like to enter the following challenges ......................
                 Alphabet Challenge Blog - B for Bottles
                 Make it Monday - Anything Goes
                 No Matter Which Challenge - Anything Goes
                 Paper Crafting Journey Challenge - Anything but a Card
                 Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes

My background from playing, I used distress stains
straight on the tag, then I added stains to my craft mat and
swooshed the tag through them, then I re put more stains on
the mat and added picket fence.  Then I edges with distress inkpads,
then sprayed with radiant rain for a hint of sparkle.

 I'm really pleased with the final tag, I which the tissue paper that I stamped
the main flowers and bottles on were lost in the tag more, normally they
do but I guess I did something differently lol.  I embossed the tag in places with
swirls, then I added embossing powder on top after inking with distress inkpad.
I randomly stamped flowers, dots and chevrons everywhere.
I stamped the bottles on tissue paper with archival jet black then modpodged
them on the tag, when I decided what flowers I wanted I also stamped them
on tissue paper but on the back coloured with promarkers.  I then decided I wanted
the bottles coloured to be green so I coloured on top with a promarker, but
it didn't show very much so I used my sharpie pens which I forgot I had.
The white is with my new sharpie paint marker, so loving this lol
I stuck book paper down before adding bottles but then I didn't like the
whiteness, so I went over with a sharpie yellow followed by modpodge,
but that was too bright so I smudged orange sharpie marker with a tissue.
The markers spread because of the modpodge already down so you get
a few seconds to blend it in :-)
