I tend to shy away from patterned paper, instead opting to create my own pattern with stamps. May I present to you a pattern of thinking seahorses!
I'm sneaking in at the last minute with my entry from the Lawnscaping Challenge #135: Patterned Palooza. As mentioned, I didn't reach for my patterned paper, but created my own by repeatedly stamping the cute seahorse from Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Sea Stamp Set, in both an aqua colored ink and white pigment ink. I then heat embossed the white seahorses and added some detail and shading with Copic Markers.
I added more to the pattern by stamping bubbles in black and covering them with Glossy Accents. I finished the card by mounting the patterned panel to a matching card base, adding a strip of patterned black and white washi tape, and some black pearl accents. For the sentiment, I used a stamp from Sophie's Sentiments and then hand wrote the "we're"...as there were many seahorses on my panel thinking.
