Drunken Stampers...Twisted Fairytales

Not the Fairy God-Monkey!!  AHHH!  But not only is it the Fairy God-Monkey, it's the Fairy God-SOCK-Monkey!  Of death!  Okay, maybe not death.  She is a little too pink and purple and smiley for death.  Hopefully this meets the "Twisted Fairytale" requirements over at the Drunken Stampers Lounge.  Loved the theme this time and you've GOT to go check some of the other entries, they are awesome.
So here is how the Fairy God-SOCK-Monkey of not death was created.  Not WHY mind you, only HOW.  The new Spun Sugar Distress Stain applied to tag (and just btw...Distress Stains ROCK!!!  Are you listening Ranger?  We need the other 24 colors...NOW!) and dried with the heat gun.  Then Dusty Concord sponged on top and the sides, then slapped some more Spun Sugar Stain on there.  There are actually three layers of the stamped swirly, you just can't really see 'em.  First layer Spun Sugar, second layer Milled Lavender (umm mostly, the stamp wasn't exactly clean, but it actually looks pretty cool in person) and the third layer is Dusty Concord after stamping off onto a scrap paper then stamping on the tag.  The stamp was made with foam using Tim Holtz's fabulous flourish die.  Here is a closer-up of the words: 
They were printed onto vellum and then I distressed the edges and covered 'em with Old Paper DI, stuck on with glue dots that got covered up with some really old tiles that I cut in half.  The pearls on the bottom and scattered about the tag are from Stampin' UP!  Fairy God-SOCK-Monkey herself was made from a
SU! stamp that was stamped with Archival ink onto sticky back canvas and colored with Distress inks using a blender pen.  She was then viciously cut apart ('cause in the original stamp she's sittin' down) and stuck onto card stock with a pretty glittery dress cut on the Cricut with DCWV's glitter stack paper.  Her crown, wings, and magic wand are grungeboard variously covered with Distress Stains, Distress Stickles (which don't show up in the pics, but really and truly are there), and gold paint dabber.  And more SU! bling for her necklace and crown. 

 The pearls on the ribbon are from 7 Gypsies and some Adornaments.  Whew!  Oh yeah, and like every good Fairy God-SOCK-Monkey, she has googly eyes.  Hope you enjoy looking at her as much as I enjoyed making her!
