Second proud piece for visiting artist at gingersnap,show us some ribbon!

Well hey there,
Here I am again and who took my week?!
I am back with my second piece for gingersnaps as visiting artist and can't believe how the week has flown!This time the challenge is ribbon and I will be the totally honest that although I have my fav vintage seam binding which I love to use , the colourful ribbon rainbow above my desk is never used and ribbon is not really me...but I am mightily chuffed with where this piece ended up!! So here she is:
I started with a trusty tag and some of my favourite blue distress inks, a Tim set of stamps and some ribbon, I even surprised myself and decided to use White ribbon.I made some White ribbon flowers which were fairly fiddly to do but I was determined!So here's what I did.
The tag was done in two halves,one using clear embossed images as resit and then coloured with DI , then when dry the image was stamped in silver paint dabber.The other half was coloured with DI and the same image stamped using a draker shade of DI.
The bird and cage were cut from grungepaper and I used a faux mercury technique on that can be found here @   http://shellyhickox.blogspot.com/2011/12/grungy-monday-new-technique.html to cover cage and Wendy vechhi leaves.

The flowers were made from tissue wrap and my ribbon roses added.Finally some crystals on stems and some Tim ribbon roses trim, far better than mine and ribbon trim were added.
Make sure you pop over to gingersnaps and have a go yourself!!!
