The Stamp Man Challenge - Night Time

This fortnight's challenge has been chosen by Michelle. The theme is "Night Time". 
I have made a very simple card using this beautiful Stampendous stamp CRR131  Crowscape
  • I cut a panel of thick white card slightly bigger than the stamp.
  • Use a circle mask where you want the moon to be.
  • Blend distress inks onto panel (I used Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire)
  • Keep it lighter in the middle to create a sort of halo effect around the moon.
  • Remove mask and stamp Crowscape with Versafine Onyx black ink pad.
  • Trim and layer up as shown.

Don't you just love the crow in the bottom right hand corner. It comes from a Stamper's Anonymous set called CMS 091  Haunted Mansion. It's awesome!!

I think this is definitely in my top 10 favourite stamps I have bought this year. I also love the fact that it's a cling rubber stamp - easier to store!!
All these products are available from The Stamp Man. The website has just had a great makeover, be sure to check it out!!

I am also entering this in the Gingersnap Creations Challenge where the theme is Ravens. Thanks Janet for mentioning it!!

  12. What an amazing stamp, Siobhan. It's so lifelike, just like looking out of the window at the winter moon through the trees. Your moon halo is beautiful.
