Soiled Dove Wall Hanging


I had so much fun putting together this little wall hanging.  I just love Lisa's Altered Art.  Her images and sentiments are just perfect.  I use them all the time.
The back piece was cut from so chipboard that had been used previously, but needed a face lift.  The piece that my lovely lady is mounted on is actually an old beer coaster.  I love using coasters on my crafts.   They are a great size and thickness.
I am not sure if you can tell from the picture, but that is a real feather on her headband.  
You can see the edge of the coaster has been inked up using Black Soot Distress Ink.  The tulle ribbon is from Maya Road.  
A vial label and remnant rubs added another bit of wit to the hanging. You can also tell from the shadow her foot makes that I used foam tape to raise her off the coaster.  The background paper is from Pink Paislee.  I used Distress Paint in Picket Fence and Weathered wood around the edges to age it.  I also spritzed it with my Distress Spritzer using my Black Soot Marker.  
I am entering this lovely lady into the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Upcycle Challenge.
What have you been crafting?
