Keeping Cool

With a nod to Rogue Redhead's Winter Blues Rebel Challenge, I wanted to play with my cool blues on a blustery day last week. 

I started by smooshing a piece of glossy paper through some misted Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  I got some great inky looking texture and let it dry.  Then, I overstamped it twice with my new text background from RRD's new Behind the Scenes collection.  I stamped first with the same Tumbled Glass ink and then stamped just a hair offset with Faded Jeans Distress.  I liked the depth it gave the text.

I used this sweet collage image of the girl and paired it with a sentiment from RRD's Snow Hugs.  Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy cardstock added the finishing touches.
Stamps: sentiment from Snow Hugs, handwritten background from
Behind the Scenes (Rogue Redhead Designs)
