The pink stars are falling

Can you guess what one of my fav TV shows is right now -
it's 'Under the Dome'.
That's where the inspiration for my card came from.
I followed Jen's sketch at Seize the Sketch,
replacing the hexagons with pink falling stars.

I never have just the right shade of card to match my coloured image, so I used a tip I picked up ages ago. I drew a wide line down a piece of white card, with the same Copic I used to colour Bella's dress.  Perfect colour match :-)

I also want to say a big thanks to everyone who left a tip re: my inking problem.
I tried rubbing my stamp with an eraser before inking it up, and it's definitely better. 
I used it on this little, star stamp.
