Random zentangle card


I did try to make this zentangle pattern random but it is very difficult not to end up making a pattern, not that it would have mattered in the slightest.  I shaded in the wide areas rather than the pointy areas just to get a different look.  The photo is taken from above and it looks curved because my card wouldn’t lie flat.  Instead of black and white I might do this one again in colour next time.

ukstampers Sunday challenge C for Child tag


I went for the monochrome look this week for the ukstampers challenge – C for child.
The image is from Karen’s Whimsy and the only stamping this week is on the large blossom – black dots. The background was made using a PVC doily and stippling some black soot distress ink through it. The ‘C’ is grunge board coloured black and the words are rub-ons. Some areas and dots are highlighted with black glitter pen.

Inks: Distress ink black soot, black document ink
Card: black card, white card
Stamps: Stampin up polka dot background
Other: Grunge board letter, daisy trim, Stampin up blossoms, black button, black eyelet, glitter pen, black pen
