Last week I shared with you Part 1 of how to create my Perfume Bottle.
The first part of the tutorial covered up to this point, how to insert ice resin into a paper piece. You can view the tutorial HERE
Today I will share with you how I finished up the project.
Prepare your embellishments by spray painting them with a white gloss paint..
The ones I used have been discontinued but a good substitute would be these
Print out Vintage French Ads digital collage sheet onto a clear sticker paper.
Cut out and place the label onto your Ice Resin Perfume Bottle.
Select a backing paper and trace an opening the size of the bottle onto it.
I used paper from the Lyric 6x6 Paper Pad
Cover all edges with black ink.
Attach backing paper to chipboard using Rubber Cement.
By now the white paint should have almost completely dried.
Using the same PearlEx powders I mixed into the Ice Resin,
I dusted the swirls with the powder.
And sealed them with a high gloss spray sealer/finisher.
Time to add some Dresden.
I used two, a gold (I would suggest
Baroque Gold Dresden Boarders to replace the gold I used which is no longer available) and the Half-Rounded Dresden Borders in pink
Cut them to size and glue them together.
Add some ribbon around the neck by poking holes to weave the ribbon through.
Finish the ribbon off with some extra fibers and a pearl, see image below.
Attach Dresden on the front and back of the ice resin bottle.
Add your other embellishments,
6mm Pink Metal Flowers, Butterflies from the Blossomwood Die-Cut Boarders stickers, and Antique Gold Diamond Filigree cut in half and covered with Flamingo Liquid Pearls.
You can stop here, but I wanted a back to write on, if you would like that too, continue on.
Grab a piece of
Lightweight Chipboard Postcard and cover it with decorative paper.
My paper is from the Lyric 6x6 Paper Pad
Fold down a 1/4" to help the card sit like a triangle instead of with the back flush. This will allow light in so your ice resin shows off.
Draw a pattern onto a template of your Ice Resin cut out.
Poke holes through the chipboard to create the pattern.
Doing this allows for a difference in light to show through the ice resin when the card is closed.
Sand the back of the card down smooth.
Select a backing paper and attach using Rubber Cement.
I used a French inspired Post Card.
Here are your two piece separated.
Punch holes through the top, equal distance from one another, and reinforce with an eyelet.
Weave the two pieces together with Strawberry Glaze Seam Binding.
And there you have it,
This is what the card looks like open.
And a view of the back, I added a Pink Rose from the Pink Roses Dresden Scraps and have room to write.
I hope you enjoy!
Let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to seeing how you use all these wonderful products.
