Tag Tuesday - Inspiring Quote

This is my inspirational tag for the challenge at Tag Tuesday this week. I was inspired to try some new things - I used some Cosmo Cricket tiny type stickers to replace 2 words in my quote stamp. I also tried out a new-to-me background technique that I think is called Antique Glimmers - basically, I used distress inks directly onto my craft sheet, misted with Glimmer Mist as well as water (it blended the inks better for me) and did the wrinkle-free distress technique to build up the background layers (how did we ever live without Tumbled Glass and Bundled Sage inks??? - just love them!), and finally I added white doodling to my swirls. Stamps: Stampin' Up! and Crafty Individuals.
