Sparkling Dragonflies

Many of you know how much I love dragonflies, I love them as a craft theme and love them on clothes, jewellery and accessories, as well as loving to see them glint over the water in real life. So it's no surprise that my all-time favourite stamp is this Linda Luckin design from about 8 years ago.

I've stamped it over a blossom-design paper from Bo Bunny, adding a sentiment to the back panel and colouring the dragonflies lightly with stickles and glitter glue. The topper is from the same Bo Bunny range, also with a stamped sentiment.

I am sharing this with

The dragonflies on this floral paper look beautiful! What a great idea! I've got a few of those stamps that are not really meant for coloring, both dragonflies and butterflies, even some bees I think, and I've never used them because I haven't known how to. Now I do:)
