and here are some close ups and TIPS & TRICKS on how i did it:

colour the background using TIM HOLTZ distress ink pads. once the inks have dried, use INDIGOBLU stencil - STARS and acrylic paint GOLDFINGER to create the starry pattern.

for the meadow use INDIGOBLU wild meadow stamp with FLITTER GLU and MEGAFLAKE chocolate box.
