Sparkle and Shine Challenge #21

Hi there!  Can you believe that we are starting our first Sparkle and Shine Challenge of the new year already!  Today starts a new challenge with this inspiration photo:
We have a new sponsor for 2016, Create a Smile Stamps!
I think the color combination used in the inspiration photo lends itself very well to a magical glittery scene!  One thing I love to do is mix and match stamp sets, sometimes using sets from different companies, together.  The Avery Elle Pixie Dust stamp set and the Star Scribbles by Papertrey Ink are a match made in heaven!  To start my card, I added Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord Distress Ink in a circular shape to the center of a piece of watercolor paper.  Then I added a a few flicks of water to get the looks I was after and diecut the panel with the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches dies.  I took the large circle scribble from the Star Scribbles stamp set and stamped in the center of the panel using a light grey ink, and filled in the stars with a Sakura Stardust pen for some added sparkle.  Then I stamped, colored and fussy cut one of the adorable fairies from the Pixie dust stamp set and popped her up in the center of the circle with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment, also from the Pixie Dust stamp set, next to her and added a few silver sequins to finish the scene.
