New Stamp, and how did it pass me by?

Well how this little collection passed me by, I have no idea!!!
Here is one image from the collection:

Isnt she Beautiful?

The Holly Fairy By Papermania, the Enchanted Christmas Collection.
Personally I think the whole Collection is amazing, and as all the set is now on its way to me, hehehe, I will reveal all, as theres also the Midnight Fairytale collection on its way as well, so I havent missed any of it, and if you cant get the full sets know that I have it all (rubbing hands with Glee!!) hehehe!!
I do like Fantasy images and the whole Christmas Collection is astounding, though not all of it has arrived yet, but the Stamps, well 2 of the stamp sets have, and I couldnt wait to get playing!!

Some of the detail, just wont show, no matter how many times I photograph it, so you will just have to take it as read!
Firstly, I Stamped this beauty onto some Centura Pearl Card, from Crafters companion, and used a black detail Powder to set her, being impatient, and got straight to work with the Promarkers, though if I carry on at this rate, I will have to get some replacements soon!!  Then I wasnt quite satisfied, so I dug out the Cosmic Shimmer acrylic inks, and touched up the "Wings", and Ribbon, the added hint of mica seems to make them flutter a bit more.

So Holly... ok its green.....and spikey.........although I have used some of the lighter shades to add a variegated feel to her skirt, as I do love Variegated Holly, its so pretty, but Holly is green, so green the colour has to be!!
Green base card, then hunted through my huge K&Co paper pad, "Best of K&Co Too", and found a green patterened sheet, then tore it to expose the core, as I wanted to tie the white back into the Green theme. A piece of Holographic green Card from my stash forms the base layer, and I added some White Satin/organza stripped ribbon from my stash, and mounted it to the base cardstock.
The out came the Happy Cut and the Labels 20 die, to cut her out, I edged it with a silver paint pen, to take the starkness out of the cut, and Mounted Holly on top.
Next up had to be the Holly Accent Border die, well come on it had to be really didnt it? So some green cardstock, and then cut it carefully into 4 pieces to get the little brackets that hold her in place, with the aid of a bit of Pinflair.
Then out came the My Craft Studio, plasctic Malleable flowers box, and I cut out a piece of Holly, and heated it to get some depth and dimension, added a white bow, and jobs a good 'un!!
