A Watery Theme

For September we have the theme of "Water", which enabled me to rifle through my pretty Stampscapes stamps...Yummo!

I had a brayered piece of card laying around in my backgrounds box which had a bit of blue in it so decided to stamp the creek scene on top. Once done, I thought it looked really anaemic! BUT....I pulled out the Micro Glaze and rubbed and polished it. What an enormous difference. The piece really is very vibrant now and very pretty.

The wording was stamped on a scrap piece and dealt in the same manner. It is from Darkroom Door.

I do have to apologise for the quality of the photo...but it is gloss card, which is always a right royal pain to photograph, but the weather is not helping here either! The only way to avoid getting a light splotch is to take the photo at an angle. But, I am sure you still get the drift!

What do you think?
