Reach for the Stars by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
With my daughter graduating from high school in a few weeks, I am in need of quite a few graduation cards for she & her friends.  I wanted something that was fairly easy to reproduce, but still fun and a little bit sparkly.  Art Impressions has a lovely collection of graduation stamps - and  Reach for the Stars (Sku #4292) fit my needs perfectly:
I coloured the star and heart with Copic markers, and coated them with a little Wink of Stella for some shimmer.  Then I added some irridescent sequins and clear micro beads to make it into a shaker card.  If you look closely, you'll see that I used the small yellow star from the die cut - adding it into the shaker mix as well.
 Copics used were Y19 & YR16
Happy stamping!
