Evening all! 

I'm taking a break from the dreaded week long spring clean but I did find a £20 note in my wardrobe before so don't feel too bad about it lol!
I wanted to show you this little beauty I recently got, she's called STARGAZER at Crafts & Me and is a digi stamp so you can get her today, no waiting! 
I'm a sucker for stars, love astronomy so the name really sold me plus she's a dream to colour.  I used promarkers and derwent coloursoft pencil then used a pastel blue in my letrajet airbrush going close to her then added some peel off stars and graduated out with the airbrush with shades of blue (pastel blue, sky blue, true blue, midnight blue and a bit of black)  I then removed the peel offs and matted on a really sparkly white card which has a multi-colour shimmer you cant really see.  I used that little group of 3 stars at the top as I wanted it to look like the fairy was commanding the stars :)
The sentiment is by funstamps and reads "Reach for the moon, if you don't make it you'll stll twnkle amongst the stars"  Lovely eh!

I've kept her simple as there is such a deep colour on the image she didn't need embellishment but she'd look lovely in lots of styles :)

Hope you like her as much as I do!

Would like to enter into...
