LOC Fairy Box

Today I have a Gift Box to show you - I love to 'mix it up' - to tell you the truth I never thought of myself as an 'Off the Page' girl, but call it 'Altered Art' and you have my full attention! LOL!

I have used the Layers of Color Fairy Wishes clear clear art stamp set, illustrated by Nina Brackett.

The wings have been stamped twice and popped up with foam tape - some sponging added using Tsukineko Versafine Inks - my all time favourite Ink and the mandatory sparkle - where would a fairy be without it!

On the edges of the Gift Box I have used the Layers of Color Belle Brocade Art Stencil

Tulle is always such a pretty touch, feminine with none of the added 'fru fru' (don't you just love that word! LOL)  The rose is from Wild Orchid....and the sentiments from Layers of Color.

This card is for the following challenges:
