I took a 105x148mm piece of white card and stamped the fairy and the wand from Tootharina in Memento Tuxedo Black ink in the centre.  (I stamped her there just for placement purposes so that I could see where I needed to ink the background). I then set to work inking the background using Chipped Sapphire and Picked Raspberry distress ink pads and my Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool.  Once the ink was dry, I used my Memory Box Starry Nights stencil and some sparkle medium (which is like a glittery clear embossing paste) to create the raised, glittery stars.  Then it was just the case of stamping the fairy and the wand onto my Copic colouring paper, colouring them with my Copic markers (colours listed above), fussy cutting them out, and then fixing them over the stamped images on the inked background.  Finally, I added some loose fine glitter to her wings and the star of her wand.
