Under lock and key....

I was really struggling with an idea for this weeks challenge from Frankie at Dragons Dream Tag it on until I noticed my fairy door and remembered how fascinated my friends little girl is by it. She has a little story about the fairy door being locked to keep humans out, they key is on the other side of the door in fairy land where only the fairies can reach it.  I decided to make my tag based on this little story so I made a green fairy door using some wood effect card from my stash and some heartwarming vintage hinges and lock. Inside I created my vision of fairyland using my brayer and dye inks
Here is the outside
I stuck the door to one side of the tag so it would open and here is the inside

The waterfall stamp is from Non Sequitur and the fairy is from elusive images. I brayered the background and then stamped the images.I removed some of the ink with water and added a little more colour with promarkers. The fairy wings and spray from the waterfall are glittered with prisma glitter but it hasnt picked that up very well in the photo. The key is another Heartwarming Vintage sticker, attached to the card with some narrow ribbon and a dragonfly brad.
I'm also entering this tag into the following challenges:
