A Man's A Man For A' That

This one's for my sister's father-in-law for Father's Day.  His catch phrase is "A Man's a Man For A' That", especially when he's had a few whiskies, which is his favourite tipple.
I used a free template from Jak Heath's blog for the bottle shape, you'll find it here if you want to download it for yourself.
For the label, I computer generated the text, cut the shape with Spellbinders Labels 3, then used Stampin' Up stamps and Distress Inks to create the image....... more Famous Pheasant than Famous Grouse!  The seal was made with circle Spellbinders, I then heat embossed the "Dad" with gold powder using a Papermania stamp, cut it out and stuck it on over the top.  To finish, I added some detail to the bottle top with a gold gel pen.
