Tooth Fairies are Frogs?!

Toothtin007

Well they could be.I remember DD1 when she was little watching a cartoon where they were mice – so why not!After all no one’s seen one,right?

The challenge at Passion for ProMarkers was to use Emerald and Marine….BUT you had to make anything but a card.

Usually these words would send me running from the room screaming.However it didn’t this time because on the very same morning the Fairy Friends set by Pink Cat Studio dropped through my letter box.Plus I remembered some Christmas tins I’d hoarded in the cupboard:

Now,my youngest hasn’t lost any teeth yet so it seemed the perfect opportunity to make something nice to put them in when the time arose.

I waded through my stash to find all I needed to put this together.I chose some more lovely K & Co paper from the huge pad.

This reminded me of water lily flowers and pads as well as the dotted jump lines that are sometimes added to cartoon frogs.I also stamped out some smiley teeth from the same stamp sheet,shaded with a litte Tulip Yellow,coated with Sakura Glaze pen and placed four around the sides of the tin.I had some fancy Anita’s Sticky Ribbon from a kit when I first started cardmaking so put that round the lid rim.I used some Papermania Textured card and that I felt was a pretty close match for the Marine pen to mount the image and the tag which was attached with a Papermania brad in a matching colour.Circles are cut with Nestabilities.Tag cut by hand.

 Next I created a poem on the computer to decorate the inside of the lid and filled the gap with another tooth.’Scuse the words I made this up myself(as you can probably tell).

As well as the two specified colours I used I managed to sneak in some Tulip Yellow from the new colours(it had to be done) and some  Metallic Gold to edge the tag and topper.Becase the tin was silver I also changed any parts that showed to gold using a Pilot permanent marker.Inside there is also a shredded emerald green nest of tissue paper(didn’t want to bore you with a photo of that).

Here’s a final pic to get the over all effect:

I haven’t told him yet but because of all the work involved I don’t want him to squash it under his pillow.When the time comes I’ll persuade him that it will be better seen by the side of his bed.
