Dust em' off # 2

I am one to never throw away something I've stamped unless I've tried and tried to bring it to life and it still, let's face it, sucks! I think I have redeemed an image stamped in Egyptian Gold, which faded into the background.  I wondered if I made a die-cut if it would be any better - NOT!  Come to save the day! - Superman, posing as Clark Kent, well-mannered ... -  no... STICKLES!  

I thought it couldn't do any worse if I put Gold Stickles all over the silhouette.  It's growing on me.  I added a Hero Arts ribbon with a few pearls and Voila!

I'm entering this into the Dust em Off challenge at A Blog Named Hero and the fabulous Die Cut Divas flickr group.
