Zentangle card humbug style

zentangleHumbugStyleSml

I caught a little bit of zentangle on a TV show a few weeks back (I think was the lady doing the demo was called Mel) and this was roughly the pattern she was doodling.  Mine isn’t quite the same as I have angled my stripes differently and also the shading.  The pattern reminds me of these old fashioned sweets you used to get that were kind of pyramidal and stripy – humbugs.  I think zentangle lends itself really well to male cards and this one is for Fraser.  Happy birthday Fraser!
