Pixie Dust Bookmark - Altered Tissue Box

I went to recycle my Puff's tissue box and noticed that it was lined with silver like a mirror on the inside. What a treasure! I used a Tim Holtz die cut (Apothecary Bottles) and an embossing folder (Bubbles) to create the tag. I then used the following alcohol inks to color the tag: Sailboat Blue, Citrus Green and then Silver. What a lot of fun. The transformation is amazing. The photos don't do it justice.

The pixie is from Gecko Galz. She is from the Pixie Children collection. I added a label from my stash, a heart shaped die cut and the words "Pixie Dust" from my computer. The bookmark is embellished with eyelash yarn, glitter and two pink gems.

I am entering this bookmark in the following challenges:
