Lawnscaping Challenge #70: Polka Dots

I hope you're in the mood to use polka dots!  This week's Lawnscaping Challenge is about using this fun pattern. 


Here's my card: 


I thought it would be fun to use the polka dot pattern as "wallpaper" and as a background for my "framed art."  You can see it, right?  I used Our Friendship Grows by Lawn Fawn as the focal point of the card.  I started by black embossing the images so that I could do some watercoloring with my new favorite paints: twinkling H2Os.  Have you seen these awesome paints?  They come in beautiful, vibrant colors and add a subtle, iridescent shimmer to your project.  It's so hard to capture the shimmer with the camera, but here's a close up of the card: 

Notice the shimmer

Since I don't own any brown paints, I just used my copics to color in the center of the flower.  I then adhered the flower and vase to a little frame I made and "hung" the frame with some natural twine and a brad. 


Thank you for visiting me today!  I hope you'll join in the challenge-- Lawn Fawn is our sponsor and will be giving away a stamp set to the winner!
