Altered bottle top

I set a challenge on my facebok page to alter a bottle top and here is my effort

I choose a fabric softener bottle and made a table decoration. I used a cola can for the metal petals, which were cut in my bigshot, burnished in a open flame....if you decide to do this a} have plenty of ventalation the fumes pong and 2] be warned the plastic cola coating does catch fire.
I free hand embossed and coloured with alcohol inks. The inner was filled with a mix of heavey beads, paper and PVA. Small beads were threaded onto wires and wound around a thin knitting needle
