Skipping Stones Design Sneak Peek and DT Call...

Today's a big day at Skipping Stones Design because not only is it time to sneak a peek at this months new release (Darling Damask) but its Design Team Call time! 

I inked up one of the background images with Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans and Broken China Distress Ink. I gave the stamp a spritz of water before stamping. Love that soft blended color! 

How about a little winter and snowflakes to cool down that heat wave we've been having. The snowflakes were cut with the cricut and covered in Stampendous Halo glitter

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Hot Shot Craft- Distess Inks
