#133, its a wrap. A gift bottle of wine.

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!
Hi there, Riet here.  I love this challenge!
It's something different than making a card.
I thought long and hard about this project, and thought it would be fun to wrap a wine bottle!
But I didn't want to do it the traditional way.....
I used the Labels set and the beautiful Lycaonia stamp,

So I changed the label with the nice label set stamp.
I left the original label on the bottle and sponged the edges with distress ink Walnut Stain.
I stamped the wine label stamp with micro glaze then sponged the label with distress ink Dusty Concord.
I sponged the outside of the label with distress ink Chipped sapphire. 
I also did this with the bow and a stamp from the pieces
of architecture set.
The bow is a die cut.

And now the top of the bottle.
Take a strip of paper that fits easily on the bottle.
Make the strip 8 cm wide.
I made a drawing of the model.

Note that the bottom strip is folded forward.
In this way it is a kind of pocket into which a tag will be inserted later.
Sponge it like the label and bow.
Now you make a tag that fits in the bag and sticks out slightly above it.
Make some dots and stars with a white gel pen.
With a stencil I wrote the Merry Christmas on it.

Now stamp the Lycaonia stamp with black waterproof ink.
I coloured this stamp with pencils, but you can decide for yourself with which you colour.
Glue her on the front edge of the bottle band.

Now put the band with the tag in it around the bottle neck, 
see how tight it has to be so that the tag does not bend too much.
Glue the two ends together.
Assemble the bow and glue it just below the Lycaonia stamp.
 And you're done.

I hope you liked it, if you have any questions feel free to ask.
This was my last contribution for this challenge.
But the challenge runs until November 30th.
So you can still participate and stand a chance to win a prize.
And who wouldn't want to win free rubber stamps.
