Zentangle


I have been practicing some zentangle and here is my first card. I used a new Woodware stamp and just had a play around with various patterns. I really enjoyed making this and will definitely be trying some more. I decided to make a white on white card. The background was made with an embossing folder and Centura pearl card. I found some textured card and cut a banner with a Die-namics Banner die and used a Sizzx corner die too.

I will be back shortly with an Easter card to share with you.
