Pegasus, Dragon, Ninjaaaa & Giveaway

Well, after the Ray Winstone debacle of last year... *still shaking head*

I decided if Gail said she didn't lurve the person on the front of this card she was going to get a thick ear...

What?

So, I thought I took some before pictures for this next bit but can't find them. It started out as one of those musical boxes with a twirling Barbie. I stole it from the charity bag when the girls had a clean out.

Barbie was lopped off and I contacted Vicki, very probably my favourite Etsy seller. Creator of fabulous ninjas extraordinaire. She very kindly adapted her 'Hug Me' ninja so that he had a hole in his bottom for me to stick the spring up... look there is no nice way of me putting that.

The box is covered on the outside with some grungy paper I had and also loads of acrylic paint. The bits and bobs are from my Nevermore add-on kit - I love that the key says 'Presto' on it as in Hey Presto the box shall now open.

Whoopidooings - Carmen Wing - Mixed Media Altered Barbie Jewellery BoxThe inside is covered in my favourite papers ever, DCWV Once Upon A Time...and more paint.

The workings were deliberately left uncovered as personally, I love seeing all that and how it all works.

Gail is famous for her ninja hugs so hence this little fella. Aren't those hearts amazing? They aren't real sweeties!

Whoopidooings/Carmen Wing - Mixed Media Altered Barbie to Ninja Jewellery BoxI'm pleased, chuffed, OVER THE MOON that Gail liked her box. I really enjoyed making it - the song it plays is "You've Got A Friend".

Now, when cheekily asked, Vicki very generously sent... another ninja to give away to one of you rabble.

Isn't he gorgeous? He stands at roughly 2" tall. You don't have to follow me, you don't even have to follow Vicki's lovely blog - she put no stipulations on offering this giveaway but I thought it would be nice if you were to pay a visit to her Etsy or Folksy shop, have a wander around, leave her some love in the comments section of this post. My personal favourite is the little reading ninja.

I'll keep the giveaway open until next Saturday the 16th of April. Good luck everyone - thanks for stopping by.

  11. Pretty, pretty papers in that altered box. And those ninja's are fab - who would have thought they could have so much facial expression with just eyes? I love the idea of them glowing in the dark too...Vicki must have a craft room that glows by night!

    Hope Ally Pally was good? Bx

  16. Now don't take this personally, but I REALLY liked the photo of Ray Winstone all tied up *drool*............... while the one of you on your table, be-paintbrushed, made me laugh. Love you though, of course.

    Ninja music box is suitably random.

    Assuming you are back safe from AP (pasty up to standard?!).
