Visionary Queen Tag

 I made this tag, the Visionary Queen, as one of my April design team projects for Gecko Galz.  

I always look to internet challenges for inspiration when creating with Gecko Galz products.  There are so many great products to choose from that I have to narrow them down to what fits a current challenge.  

This tag is made for this week's Shabby Tea Room challenge where I was inspired by the color combo.

Gecko Galz April 2013 products:

Waters Edge from Butterfly Meadow digital paper pack:  color digitally altered and then cropped, printed on card stock, and cut to 6x3 tag size.
Artful Visions collage sheet--crop circle image and size to 2-1/2 inches; cut with circle die

Other Materials used:

2-1/2 circle metal die from Sizzix Framelits
white paper doily from stash
Flowers:  Michaels and Flying Unicorn paper floral stems
Recollections Adhesive Faux Pearls
Ranger Gold Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder
Ranger Tarnished Brass Distress Stain
blue and gold Dresden metallic trims from stash
bow found in my stash of trims which was recycled from another project that has long since "bit the dust"--I'm pretty sure it was from one of my Bella Creations design team projects.
Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Art Fit for a Queen stamp set (sentiment)

Entering this challenge:

The Shabby Tea Room:  Challenge #162 Pretty Shabby and use Colors in Photo and a recycled item (bow)
