Here is my take on these challenges.....





 I have washed and dried the bottle very well.
Once dry I used Quick crack to coat the inside of the bottle and let it dry completely. when it was dry I used white craft paint and coated the inside of the bottle by rolling it to cover the entire inside, when it dries it has rather big crack in the paint. I then added pink craft paint and once again rolled it to cover the inside of the bottle. My husband says it looks like sour strawberry milkshake!!! LOL
The flower on top is a rose made out of Fimo clay and a silicon mould, baked and then glued onto the cap....then spray painted with Rust-o-leum paint in White. I then covered the rose with Glossy Accents and Pink Glitter.
Lace, pink pearls and pink roses: Live Love Crafts
Ribbon from my stash
The pink stone is from an old earring and the bracelet I shortened to hang around the neck of the bottle.
