Inspiration photo week at The House That Stamps Built, isn't this photo peaceful and serene, it makes me want to curl up with a good book but instead I got out my crafting supplies and had some fun.  Here is what I came up with:

I got out my Distress Oxide Inks and created my background, misted with water and then with sheer gold shimmer (close up below). Then I stamped it with Repeat Impressions 1401-P, Portland Head Light (sm).  Is it not fabulous?  I was pleased with the result, I am liking my Distress Oxide Inks and the Repeat Impression scenery stamps make the final result so simple!
I hope you are inspired to play along at this weeks challenge at The House That Stamps Built,  check out the details on the blog and how you can win a $25 gift certificate.

You created a scene that looks like you could step into it. The blend of your sky is stunning and the texture you got with the addition of water is fabulous. Love those DO Inks myself!
