Captured Fairy

Well, here she is!  This is the result of a swap on rubberstampchat (my favorite place for stamping swaps).
The fairy is stamped, colored with Copic markers, and then glittered up with some gel pens.  The difficult thing is assembling.  Assembling so that it won't fall apart when shipped.  Very difficult at times, and next time I will find a jar with a wider mouth.
 However, with copious amounts of Diamond Glaze and some judicious use of (hopefully) hidden toothpicks, she is standing up and staying up.  The shiny greenery in the background came from a sheet of Martha Stewart stickers - God Bless Martha.  Yes that is an egg!
One requirement was to decorate the lid and to add a tag. I hear she arrived safe and sound - I miss her sturdy presence in the craft room.
