Absinthe Fairy - Tag

So on the craft forum I chat on we have a 'bingo' swap this month, where we can make anything but have to include some items off a bingo board.

I went straight through the middle and picked top to bottom Ribbons / Inks / Green.

Now for some reason (and don't go thinking I'm some sort of alcoholic lol), the green just made me think of the Green Fairy associated with the drink Absinthe. Actually one of my favourite scenes from the Baz Luhrman film 'Moulin Rouge', is the Green Fairy with Kylie.

First off I found a suitable fairy - Talullahbelle from Kraftin' Kimmie and coloured her with various green promarkers.



I then cut a tag in a rough bottle shape, which I've decorated with various inks / paints.

Attached my Green Fairy and then made a bottle top from some black card so I could attach some ribbons but keep them hidden.

Finally I coloured in some card with 3 different greens. Stamped on a background written image in green and punched out some flowers to decorate!









Entering into following challenge:
