TIO #82 Winged Things!

Well this week it's back to me to start the dream over at the TIO Challenge. Firstly thank you all for the fantastic dreams you shared with us last week. I hope that my team mates and I can inspire you to dream along with us again with our theme this week,Winged Things!!!
My dream was inspired by a charm I bought of a Dragonfly from IndigoBlu, at Port Sunlight a few weeks ago. I used glossy accents then carefully added copper thunder gilding flakes to his wings, and also to attach gem's to his body. I think he will have to end up on a necklace though LOL.
My base tag was inked up with a mixture of dried marigold and scattered straw distress inks.
 The stamps are a mixture of Artemio and Aspects of Design, stamped out with versamark and a mixture of cosmic shimmer mica powders dusted over, not played with those for a while, I'd forgotten how gorgeous they were! I finished off my tag by adding some sari ribbon, must have my sparkly head on this week. Hope you enjoy dreaming along with us this week, and pop over to my teamies blogs to see what they've been up to! Check out the link on my sidebar to join in.
Love Elizabeth xxx

Love it. You have embellished the dragonfly so carefully and beautifully. Love the colour blending of the background.

I love your dream this week, and that charm is gorgeous..... so gorgeous. I wouldn't have been able to bring myself to use it.... or would have taken it off and used it somewhere else later!!
