Fairyland Money Box

Good morning all, I'm counting down to a nice long weekend off work and hopefully lots of time in my craft room. I certainly won't be venturing far if the weather stays like this. My project today is my entry for the new Lavinia Stamps Challenge and I've made a little mdf money box that I've decorated with Lavinia Stamps and lots of paper flowers. Sorry about the dark pics, its been so grey and dismal here.

Here's a pic of the front, all the images were stamped with black archival ink and coloured with derwent Inktense pencils:

And here's the back and one of the sides:

And the other side of the money box.

I painted the money box with soft cream emulsion paint and then dry brushed green acrylic over the bottom and blue acrylic at the top. The fairies all have a little glamour dust on their wings and I stamped little stars with flitter glu and added some pastel coloured glitter here and there.

The roof of the money box hides the slot to pop the money in, I cut  a rectangle from grungeboard and then attached lots of paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts with my hot glue gun (ouch! I always end up with burnt fungers and covered in glue gun cobwebs lol)> Once it was finished I sealed it all with a coat of Maimeri Matte Gel Medium

I'm also entering this project in the following challenges:
Crazy Challenge: Fairies and flowers
Tuesday Throwdown: something dimensional
