Altered Oil Lamp

Recently I was looking at a post by Ingvild Bolme (if you don't know her work then do yourself a favour and drop by her blog!). She decorated a lovely glass bottle with alcohol inks, various trinkets, flowers and chipboard, which provided me with the inspiration to try something similar...

Now I happen to have a small collection of lovely old oil and kerosene lamps collected from various second-hand and antique shops over the years. They really aren't worth much in terms of dollar value, but I like them and enjoy displaying them in my home. Anyway, this one little lamp caught my attention as the perfect item to alter and I decided to take some step-by-step photos to show how easy the process really is.
