Lawnscaping Challenge #7 - Make your own Patterned Paper With Stamps

Go on over to the Lawnscaping site and participate in their current challenge!  It's fun!  You don't have to use Lawn Fawn stamps if you don't have any, and as I only have two sets, the Bannerific & Sophie's Sentiments sets, I needed to do some serious thinking about how I was going to go about this challenge!  My sister is celebrating her 20th Wedding Anniversary, and hopefully her young spirit will appreciate a non-traditional card!

Paper: PTI Cardstock (Beryy Sorbet); Neenah Solar White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; CTMH Dye ink (Sorbet); Copic Markers
Stamps: Lawn Fawn
Other: Gems (Kaisercraft); Stickles

As you can see I simply created the "patterned" background by repeat stamping the sentiment in Sorbet ink, at a slant.  I added a few gems here and there.  The little birdies are coloured with Copic Markers, popped up with dimensional dots and I also added some stickles to their wings.

I have been trying to figure out what my style is when it comes to card making, I seem to be leaning more and more towards the more clean and simple style!

I should be back later with one or two more cards, but right now I am off to the Optician to see if my prescription needs reviewing or if it's simply old age!  I'm sure it's not age!  Right.......
