Mirror Mirror on the wall, Who's the Fairyest of All?

A fairy tale...

It was a dark & stormy night. The Dead Fairy wondered...

Mirror Mirror on the wall, Who's the Fairyest of All?
Startled by sudden light, the Dead Fairy turned... to see…

The Dread Paparazzi preying like wolves and vultures, with their
 steampunk and drone cameras 
(stamps from viva las vegas and silver crow creations again)

.... the Dread Paparazzi!!!  
"It triggered a flashback to the last time they had 
caught her out without her makeup!" 

The door slammed shut....

Clear plastic box about the size of an ATC, altered. Skeleton was set into a bit of green clay to stay upright. A sunglasses lens had a thick layer of glitter glued round the edge and an oval mirror set into it. The white eyelash yarn made good net curtains.
Dead Fairy kit, lamp, spectacle sunglass lens etc from
Graphic 45 paper
Toadstool house stamp from Third Coast RS stamped on acetate and coloured with alcohol inks.

My dead scary fairy!

 She now resides in her new home after being caught in my garden killing my beautiful gardenias!  She lives with her pet tarantula, yes he had to come too!, named Tary!  There is black magic dust looks a lot like glitter but it is the dust she sprinkles on flowers to kill them.  Here she is relaxing on the computer!  And do not worry, please, I give her a fresh new flower each day to feed and drink on and then kill for her amusement!

Also, she does not stay locked away all the time! I let her out and because she insists on having Tary with her, they have free reign over a room in my house I switch it up.  Why one room? I am terrified of Tary!! He is very protective of my dead fairy!

Here she is out of her home!  Her wings are made from sugar skulls stamped and fussy cut and you can find these skulls in a set of 6 different skulls at Lost Coast Designs.  She is courtesy of a friend also using the Dead Fairy Kit for SilverCrow Creations with some minor adjustments to clothing color and wings.
For more details to the story check out my personal blog Deep into the Darkness Peering.

Digital Hybrid makes my make this day. I used the "Honey" image by Smeared Ink as well as the sentiment and a digi paper. Honey is colored with Sharpies, Bics and my new two Copics :)

The background elements have more elements by Marta van Eck at Mischief Circus Midnight Reverie and Magic Light. There are also some digital papers blended that I made, too.
