Sunday Stampers - Anything goes!

This week, Hels has said we can use anything at all - our favourites - everything - on her Sunday Stamper challenge.

So, at the start of my new blog year - can you believe it's a year already I've been blogging (well, some of you can cos you saw Friday's post) - I went back to some old favourites - Stampscapes.  Before I started blogging, I used these stamps loads, and haven't for ages.  But I saw that Ellen had used some in her SS entry (boy, she was quick off the mark!) and my brain woke up!!  I don't ONLY do grunge!!

I took a sheet of white cardstock - it's designed for digital images but is beautiful for stamping on - really smooth - I bought it months ago at Craftwork Cards and haven't used it before - but it IS good - just like they said it was.                                 

I brayered the background using Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze and stamped a variety of Stampscapes images with black archival ink to make a moonlit scene.  A white pen adds some moonlight highlights.          
(P.s. if you like my photo blog, I've uploaded some more this afternoon!)

Wowser Helen, this is gorgeous, love all the content and agree that it's so tranquil, it makes me wonder what the person in the boat is up to, lol.

Helen! I love this! I need the birds stamp from SS, I'm missing that. And I don't have the dude in the boat. This is awesome, so tranquil and serene. Although I'd rather be in the cabin than in the boat. lol!
