Pink fairy house for More Mixed Media challenge

This is my design project for More Mixed Media pink challenge:
Please click on the challenge link to see the gorgeous projects by the talented and creative members of the team ... and we would love you to join in with your mixed media pink creations. It could be the main focal colour or just as splash - it's up to you.

I was wandering around The Works seeing what bargains they had and I came across this fairy house that I knew I just had to buy for my pink creation.

This is what is said about the house:

'A lovely little wooden fairy house that you can paint, decorate and embellish to your own personal taste. Once you've created your design, place the fairy house in your bedroom, open the doors, and let the fairies in.

A great way to introduce fairies to your home to open up a whole new magical world for your children.'

 The fairies aren't going to be in our bedroom, but they are welcome in the craft room.

I mixed white gesso and bright pink acrylic paint to paint the lovely pink background. I coloured the windows with spectrum noir pens, also the heart. I brush spectrum noir sparkles around the window frames and the windows and also added sparkle to the doors. White lace, spotted material and pearls were added to the roof and flowers etc to the front wall of the house. The lovely chipboard 'believe' panel is one that I've had for ages - there is a strip of gems behind it, but can't really see them in the photo.

I couldn't get a picture of the whole of the fairy inside, but you get the general idea (should have taken a picture of her before sticking inside, with difficulty!).

I put a fairy inside ... to let others know that they are welcome!:
