cut paper perfume svg files

Perfume bottles
Inspired by the old cobalt bottles that turn blue over time.
I sketched out some bottle shapes, scanned into
Inkscape.  I turned the into .svg files 
for my cutting machine
Using a heavy printer paper, I painted several sheets with acrylic
paint. Some of the papers I painted marks, 
fat crosses, dashes, lines, etc.
I hand cut smaller shapes and created doodles and marks 
with a gel pen. I like shading the edges 
with an old, dry stamp pad.

collection of vases
collection of sepia things

how they are made:
strips of coffee dyed paper painted with sumptuous sepia watercolor.

embellished with a white gel pen.
I made some vase shapes a while back,
and created cutting files which in turn became the sepia vases
