"Put on your Cape" Grunge Wooden Tag

Hello creative people! Miranda here! I am SO HAPPY to be posting here for the
first time on this amazing team, full of so much talent! 
It truly is a dream come true, and I hope I may be able to share some
inspiration with you all during my time here! 
I had created a wooden tag very similar to this a few months ago,
however it was sent out to a trade show and came back
all messed up. I couldn't bare to trash it, so I decided to give it some
extra love and a remake! Enter Um Wow :)
What can I say.....DeeDee makes the best products! I even used her new
range with 7 dots! Squeal! 

I kept the colors pretty monochromatic with just browns, hints of gold. 
I love using alcohol inks and gold foil! 2 of my favorite mediums! Staples for me! 
And the chipboard took them so well!

I used the new stencil for Dreamscapes by DeeDee for 7 Dots on the "P", using micro beads and 
matte gel. Of course it was covered in alcohol ink afterwards :)

These butterfly wings are BEYOND gorgeous! I gold foiled them and the background 
hexagon and then highlighted with more alcohol ink. That was pretty much the technique 
through out the piece ;) 

Lastly for my title I just had to add one of the gorgeous crowns! If you are putting on
a cape to fly, throw on a crown too hehe! It blends a bit in the photos
but in person it is lovely.

And Just a close up of the ribbon and rope tied to the top, extra grungy of course .

I hope you like my project! I will be back to share a tutorial and new project soon! Hugs!
