twinkle twinkle little star

This little girl holding a string of sparkly stars was just the inspiration for both the Monday challenge (party time) and Wednesday challenge (make it sparkle) over at Simon Says Stamp. Showcasing Hero arts products...
The Less is More Challenge : children

Apart from their ultra stamp cleaner I'm afraid I didn't use any Hero Arts stuff....sorry.

The little girl is from C.C. Design and called Star.

I used My Favorite Things Hybrid black ink to stamp her and the sentiment with the WRMK precision press tool.
I got it for my birthday this week and was keen to try it. So far so good.
I also got the portrait box with 6 Illustrator markers from Spectrum Noir. Also used the black Spectrum Noir markers  for the rest of the colors.
I used Crafter's Companion ultra smooth Neenah solar white card stock as my base.
After coloring I adhered the panel onto my card base with tape runner.

I used Wink of Stella on the stars and then covered the stars with glossy accents for shine and sparkly stars.

I thought the sentiment could go for loads of occasions, even Christmas because of the stars, but you could reinforce this on the inside with Happy birthday etc. I didn't yet as I'm not sure when I will send this out...too late for Christmas, but good for a birthday. graduation of some sorts etc.
