It's A Nightime Challenge at The Stampman

Morning folks. I just have to say I have the nicest Followers in Blogland. Your comments give me a lovely warm glow. Thank you all.

After the crisp sunshine of the last couple of days it's grey and dark here today but we have to be grateful for all the nice days we get at this time of year so I'm not complaining.

It's time for a new challenge over at The Stampman again and this time my dear friend Michelle has set a NIGHTIME theme. This panicked me slightly to begin with and then I was inspired by a stunning tag the very talented Artyjen created here and this got the old juices flowing.

Not having a black distress ink I used Chipped Sapphire and Walnut Stain blended over the masked moon. I liked the idea of a big moon and the Tim Holtz clock seemed to work with it. I used some clock hands my DH had brought me from bits and pieces he found at work. Goodness knows what they use them for but they are perfect for crafting.

Mr Umbrella Man had to come out again but I silver embossed him this time and he's walking in the shower of stars stamped with Brilliance Starlite Silver with Diamond Stickles added. (The stamp was actually the flower centre from the Funky Flowers stamps)

The sentiment was computer generated and I clear embossed the black background with some text just to add some extra interest.

The rest of the Design Team have created some simply stunning work so don't forget to pop over to the Challenge blog and have a closer look. Mrs Stampman is offering a £10 voucher to spend at their sparkling new website for the winner so lets see all your nightime projects.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend whatever you are up too.
