Crowning Glory

This tag is another in the rolling recipe challenge over on UK Stampers Forum. This weeks recipe is:

1.  Crown
2.  Fabric
3.  Paint

I started with a white card tag and painted the background with red Dylusions acrylic paint followed by gold paint dabber.  I die cut the crown from grungepaper with a Sizzix TH Alterations die and coloured with more gold paint.

Next I took a piece of crimson rouched chiffon and applied this over the background with some glue dots and trimmed around the edge with scissors.  I cut another border from Sizzix TH alterations from a piece of spin 'n' splash card I had made ages ago with Alcohol inks and Mixables and applied this at the bottom with Glossy Accents.  I then stamped an owl several times from Red Castles Rango Zoo 2 plate in jet black Stazon and applied the gold crown on foam pads to one of the stamped images as shown.

Some gold drops were added and a little platinum Stickles to embellish the crown and base decoration.

A red eyelet was added with the crop-a-dile and some gold chiffon ribbon added and fixed with a gold staple to finish.
