All the Stars

Yah, it's November and time for another Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge!
A Colorful Life Design's November release is out and I made 2 cards with the stencil called All the Stars:

To create the background I used Pixie Spray on the back of the stencil to give it good adhesion and then ink blended Ranger Ink's Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch. My plan was to keep the fade out so that the little dog and cat were the focal point.
The sentiments and images are from the Colorado Craft Co. Anita Jeram's All is Bright Stamp and Coordinating Die set. They were colored with my various alcohol markers. I use Altenew's Obsidian Black Pigment Ink for all my black stamping. It is the darkest I've ever used...but be sure to let it dry for it will smear. I generally stamp and set it to the side for a while before I work with it again.
I love when there is the coordinating die. It just cuts out all the little details that the Brother Scan 'n Cut does not. See the spaces between the branches?
Here they are side by side. Which is your favorite?
