Lawnscaping Challenge #40

 
 
After a hot weekend, the weather is cooling off now with sunshines and some breeze. 
 
Today's card is to create your own patterned paper with stamps and creating a focal point and repetition challenges of your project which are the challenge over at Moxie Fab World.  I made my own wrapping paper by using distress inks broken china and peeled paint and stamped them on a A4 size white paper.  Once I achieved the background colours, I stamped the sentiment. 
 
I also made a matching card by using the same colours on the background and stamped the sentiment repeatedly but gave a twist by a fold as the focal point.

So clever, Lai-Yoke! You always amaze me with your fresh take on stamping - this reminds me a little of the stamping block technique except I don't have to clean my blocks first...perfect! Great colours & love the scattered greetings too :)

This looks wonderful Lai-Yoke.
The pastels in the block pattern on you card has lovely texture and adding the peg creates a a tactile quality, so you will pick it up because it is there!

Such an awesome technique to fold up the paper like that. It reminds me of when women wore colored petticoats just to give the boys a little peek at something extra. ;o) Thanks so much for playing with us at Lawnscaping!
