Star gazing

I saw this stamp - Midsummer's Night,  a couple of weeks ago at Lili of the Valley when they had their open day.  This is one of their newer stamps.  I hadn't got it and thought it was so cute I bought it.

Instead of colouring the mushrooms red I decided to do more of a fantasy colouring of pink and white.  I used ProMarkers to do this.

Once I'd got the image done and wanted to put it onto a card I had a complete creative block.  I spent ages last night trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it.

In the end I went for something very simple in the layout.  The papers are from Lili of the Valley and NitWit Collections - Solids Always and Forever, and Solids Bonnets and Bowties.

I've added to this some clear self adhesive gems, some silver star beads and finished off the stars in the image and the wings with DecoArt Twikles Writer.  Finally I've added a sentiment highlighted with pale pink and self adhesive gems.

The "bling" makes it appropriate for Crafty Little Fairest current challenge - Sparkle & Bling so I'm going to enter this card into that challenge.

Got there in the end :) x
