How to get the water look in the river, stamp set Peaceful Place. Shimmery Crystal is perfect for a water look.

Hello Friends,
Are you wondering how you can get the look of water in a stamped image? The Shimmery Crystal Effect is perfect for the water look. If you add a little Chrystal Effect on top of the river in the Peaceful Place, you get the perfect look of moving water. It look like the river is running. Just one extra touch to your card and you get this amazing effect. 

I have the video below or you can view on my YouTube Channel.  

I been using the Peaceful Place stamp set a lot lately. With view of this scenery it is hard to put away. Every time I make a card with this set I truly feel like I am right there in the nature and it is peaceful.
Well if you know me just a little, you know the outdoor and nature is something the I love.  All this to let you know to be on the lookout for more cards using this stamp set.

Tip for Shimmery Water 

A friendly reminder that you do NOT want to shack the tube/bottle of the Shimmery Crystal Effect. Shacking the container, will create air pocket, some air bubble in the crystal effect. If you do have air bubble when applying crystal effect on your project use the tip of the bottle to pock it 🙂 to remover the bubble. 

Where you want the look of water apply a light coat of Shimmery Crystal Effect. You can use a paint brush to smooth the crystal effect or a piece of wax paper with your fingers. You can always leave it the way it come out but sometime it is too think at places so a brush is very handy. If using a paint brush make sure to wash is has soon that you are done. The crystal effect will harden quick on any surface and paint brush. I use warm water with dish soap to wash my brush. All tips are show in the video below.
