The theme at Weekend ATC Challenge is “alles was fliegt aber kein Vogel ist”, which means (loosely translated and no, I don’t speak German) ‘Anything which flies but isn’t a bird’.  Hels’ challenge for Sunday Stamper is ‘Rhinestones’, so this covers both – I hope.

anything but a bird

The background is glossy card, coloured with Brilliance reinkers and water, which is overstamped with Adirondack Stonewash and Twilight Purple, which rarely stamps crisply on glossy card, which is why it looks a little smudged – it isn’t – honestly, lol.  Dragonfly coloured with Tombow Pens, then glitter glazed and there are three tiny gems on there…

Purple and Bling! Brilliant combo. Love how the dragonfly and elements are clustered in one corner, off the page, leaving plenty of space on the lhs. I lurve spaces!!! Pxx

Gorgeous! I love Dragonflys live or stamps. Purple seems to be a popular color for me right now. I am a Libra so I'm quite unbalanced when it comes to colors (lol)
