Breaking the gossamer threads and the nets of dew
And flashing a-down the river, a flame of blue!
The kingfisher flies like an arrow, and wounds the air.
– from Magdalen Walks by Oscar Wilde, 1881
I used two rubber stamps in my piece, French Correspondence from B Line Designs and a stamp from the Architectural Blocks stamp set from Layers of Color. If you're wondering what I used for the rust colored elements, I have a tip for you. It's anaglyptic or textured wallpaper that I colored with Adirondack Dabbers (black and terra cotta), then cut out the portions I wanted to use.
