Make Your Own Patterned Paper

Good morning lovely peeps and happy Monday. :) My weekend didn't go quite as I planned. That plan to clean up my scrap room... yeah, not quite happen. I woke up with layout ideas in my head and ended up playing and create more beautiful mess. Oh well, there's always next weekend, right?

One of the creation that came out from my weekend mess is this card that I made for Lawnscaping latest challenge, make your own patterned paper.

Here's my card:

I simply stamped the airmail & plane sign repeatedly in various colors to create the background. I do find it more freeing when I let go of perfectionism. Instead of stressing out and restart all over when the stamped image didn't line up perfectly, I just kept going and ignore the crooked line. And  that platypus... love. I  got the Critter's Down Under set really just because of the platypus. :)

Are you feeling inspired to play along? Well, come on... And check out what the DT gals and our August guest designer,  Julie Ebersole has created for this challenge HERE. Hope your week starts off wonderfully!
