Lawnscaping Challenge #135 - Pattern-palooza!

well, It's time for a new Lawnscaping Challenge!! :) 
and it's time for a new month! and people - IT'S AUGUST!! i seriously can't believe it's already August...

anywho - let's focus on the good! 
the new Lawnscaping Challenge is all about patterns!! making your own patterns, using patterned paper, anything with patterns!! :)

i went a bit abstract with some of my patterns, but stick with me! :)

eeeek! i love it!
i watercolored the flamingos from Flamingo Together with Distress Markers! and once they were dry, i stamped the triangles from Sharp Backdrops on top of them!! LOVE that!! 

next, i added some watercolor in Distress Inks (Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers). LOVE all of those tropical colors together! :)
i added the woodgrain pattern from Woodgrain Backdrops to the water to look like waves, and the stars to the sky from Starry Backdrops

i heat embossed the sentiment with white on black cardstock, and then added a strop of black and white patterned washi to the side! 

so that's my projectare you ready to play along?
this week we're sponsored by a brand new sponser for the Lawnscaping Challenge - Ellen Hutson! so get your card making on, and you could win a $25 gift certificate! hello!! :)
