The Otter Fairy Shadow Box

I have decided, this is what the tooth fairy looks like. Four inches tall, butterfly wings, and oh yeah, it's an otter.
I drew the otter, then watercolored and cut it out. Cute little guy, huh?
The background is painted with acrylics and sprayed with glimmer mist for a little sparkle :) Then all the embellishments are from my planty stash. I have a shoebox full of little branches and leaves and things that I've collected and butterfly wings and feathers and stuff.
 Then I popped it all into a shadowbox frame! Oh, and I added the "Be Good" metal pieces since this is a gift for a young friend who is going off to college soon... A good reminder for a college kid, right? Happy Tuesday, friends!

PS. I did tell my sister to tell my 4-year-old niece that this IS REALLY what the toothfairy looks like. She said she will :)
