My Not So Bright Idea Fairy!

Why not so bright fairy? Cos her head is made from a blown light bulb!
Her face is part of a collage stamp from Stampotique using black Archival and coloured on the back with pencil crayons for a subtle look.
Wings are Tim Holtz cut from thin black card and paper (which was scrunched and covered in mica sprays in oranges and pinks.
The body is 4 corks of various sizes (picked up by my other half from various pubs/clubs while working on their air cons or ice machines as we don't drink, poor man they must think he's married to a weirdo when he asks for corks, bottle tops and beer mats!!!!)
Skirt is a flower with the middle cut out to fit around the cork and the top is Zooms by Stamp Galaxy.
Her hair is another 'find' by my other half 3 long springy things (not sure where they are from). These I wired together leaving ends for a fringe which I twisted around a pin.
Every thing was stuck together with silicon glue.
