Kind of sloppy water coloring! I made the picture smaller so you can't look too closely!
I was worried the recipient of this card would wonder why I left a pencil outline, so I went over the original "square" with an 03 microperm pen and emphasized the corner dots.
Stamp Set : Stampendous April Shower Flowers
The flower outlines with the patterned oval rings and oval shapes reminded me of zentangle designs. I stamped in the traditional size zentangle "square" (3.5inch square of 140lb watercolor paper with a loosely pencil sketched wavy square inside). I stamped with archival ink and colored with Tombow markers. The first example used a watercolor technique. The second example (already made in to a card) I got bolder color by only using water on the background. Hmmm, these were ok, but not exactly a zentangle. What's missing? Ahhh, the string! A pencilled in random line that divides the area in to sections to be filled with pattern. I'll post my next experiment with zentangle and stamping tomorrow. Thanks for hanging with me so far! In the meantime, if you haven't checked out the zentangle website, they describe strings and tangles and supplies there. The newsletters are a great way to learn.
