Altered Bottle

My work tables are currently covered in all kinds of bottles and bits and bobs to alter them.  If bottles are your thing, stay tuned for several future bottle posts (some with tutorials).
This particular bottle is colored with Alcohol Ink.  The gold stems and leaves are metallic stickers.  I filled the leaves with microbeads and added rhinestones to the round areas.  The final touches are the brass dragonflies, bees and flowers.   The stopper is a crystal drawer pull.
