Lawnscaping Challenge #132 - Distress Mania

so excited! it's a Lawnscaping Challenge! it's a new week! what's not to love about today?

i am so in LOVE with the new Flamingo Together stamp set! and truth be told, i already have a bunch of flamingos already colored up in varying shades of pink! but then it hit me...i can make them swans!

eeeee! right? I watercolored the 'swans' with Distress Markers and then fussy cut them out. the background was created by using two panels of white cardstock. first, i used Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks blended together. on the other one, i used Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon to blend together. then I die cut the wave shapes using the Ocean Wave Borders die

i used Spun Suger, Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade for the sunset! and then i sprinkled water over it all! 

the top wave is popped up for dimension. and then i stamped the sentiment from the adorable, mini, Believe in Yourself stamp set! :)

this week we're sponsored by lawn fawn! so get your card making on, and you could win a stamp set of your choice! :)
