Rhinestones From Above

It has been a while since the Crafters Guild has had a good battle. Today we received a message from the good folk at Crushed Olive Glen who were under siege from a band of vengeful angels. Angels can be tricky to defeat at the best of times, but vengeful ones are even harder. I armed myself with my great bow, Fungi, and instructed the other guildys to ensure they loaded up on ranged weapons and long distance spells as we would surely be fighting the angels as they soared through the air.

I started this ATC by stamping the Kraftin’ Kimmie “Celestina” and colouring her with Prismacolors. I then stamped the stars using the Lawn Fawn “Summertime Charm” set. The little “glowy dotted halos” also came from that Lawn Fawn set. I added some bling to the stars using Stickles. 
Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted something shiny on the floor of the crafting chamber. It was a rhinestone that had fallen off my Lexus tunic, which I am almost always wearing when crafting at the Guild Hall. 
See the missing spot at the bottom of the “L”? (along with the massive amount of direwolf hair - haha). That’s where the gem came from. Not wanting to waste anything, I decided to glue it on my project, giving Celestina a little hairclip. This also had the added benefit of earning me +105 reusable exp points. I don’t know if that means I can reuse these exp points towards another skill, or if I am now better at reusing things...hmmm...where are the instructions with all these exp?

This ATC will ascend into the following challenges:
Desert Islands Crafters Challenge #53 - (used #6: recycle it (gem stone), #7: glitter it, #10: angels)
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Inspired By (I was inspired by the latest Cassandra Clare novel I'm reading in which angels are a prevalent force)

As we approached Crushed Olive Glen, we could see the angels flying above the huts, raining vengeful fire down upon the scared villagers. I notched an arrow, nodded to the Lady Commander of Copics and Guardian of Glitter and in unison we unleashed our attack, bringing the angels down one at a time.
