I decorated this wooden box as a birthday pressie for my niece in Qld. Her birthday is 7th January and I'm often late for it, unless I'm organised before Christmas. Thought I was going to be late with it again this year but seeing as how I was feeling so yuck yesterday, I sat and made this last night...cheered me up no-end...it's the first crafty thing I've done for a while.

And here's a close up of the gorgeous fairy:
The fairy is Royal Flower by Caron Vinson, from Sweet Pea Stamps. Caron's fairies are simply GORGEOUS. I've had some of these for a while now and haven't inked them up...will be using them more now that I've broken the drought :) She was lovely to colour.
Unfortunately, I find it very difficult to get the sparkle and bling to photo well...this looks so lovely IRL. Her wings have been embossed with Polysparkle EP, her dress overlay spritzed with Glimmer Mist and glitter pens used to highlight her hair and colour the flowers...oh well, one day when I have nothing else to do, I'll take some photography lessons on how to photo special effects!
Thanks for looking...have a wonderful day :)
