Silver Fairy

Hi all, for a NEW Challenge at One Crazy Stamper and the chance for you to show us your stuff!!  The Challenge is "anything goes"!!!  Can't wait to see what you submit.
My project for this new challenge is using a Whimsy Stamp called Silver Fairy.
I stamped the image onto Xpress It Blend Cardstock, colored her with copics, and die cut in around the image leaving the wings free. P1010809 Speaking of wings - she does have more than the image because I masked the main image and stamped her wings over top, giving her lots of beautiful wings - and more for me to color. 
The Spellbinders Die Cuts I used are:  A-2 Fancy Ribbon Threader and Floral Ovals.  I loved coloring this image - using reds is not as easy as the other colors.  The picture shows a beige on her wings, but it is actually a Stardust pen, which shows as a hint of glimmer IRL.   Loved the way she turned out. I swiped my VersaMark pad over the  Fancy Ribbon Threader die, and heat embossed it with White.   It is hard to see in the picture, but I intertwined a clear organza ribbon around the matted die cut, nipping it under the die cut at intervals to give it a twisted appearance and tying the ends into a bow in the lower left corner.  (I thought the coral was a bit too stark.  Of course, it wouldn't be a frilly, fancy card without flowers and sprigs of green!!  The card base (5 1/2 x 11 - folded in half) was sponged with a coral to blend in.
