mixed media monday challenge

Hi,
Here is my challenge for the Mixed Media Monday it is based on a 'Star', yjis is my take on it, the background is a postcard I received, I have recycled it for my challenge... After finding this picture of Helen Mirren ( a true star) in a magazine I checked out her birth sign Leo (stars) included it in my piece...I inked some bubble wrap and dabbed around the edges of the card...found a contrasting agrylic paint and using a dry stencil brush I stippled all around the 3 images and then using a bottle cap I added circles of gesso to finish it off.
Thanx for looking. Chriss x
