night skies for the stampman..

Hey there bloggers,
I want to say a huge welcome to my new followers and also a huge thanks to all my followers and for the lovely comments I have received, they make my day and I appreciate the time you all take to stop by and look around, thanks I am loving being part of blogland!!!
Onwards, the challenge at stampman challenges @  http://thestampmanchallenges.blogspot.com/  is night skies, I had a clear idea of what I wanted to do and then did this instead..and am really pleased..I love the way inkyness evolves and you suddenly find all this things long forgotten, play and end up with a pleasing result!!!! even if my room looked like a hurricane had just passed through, I used to be such a neat crafter!!!
So, here she is :
I started by making the background using DI, I used the variations of : tumbled glass, stormy skies,pumice stone,chipped sapphire and black soot.The dark colours were using sparingly.I then stamped the birds on a wire and the collage image and clock on paper coloured in the same way, the one and only TIM stamps from lost and found, lifes possibilities and ornate collages.

The elements were then all layered up using pinflair glue.

I am entering this for the following competitions:
