Zentangle


This is an interesting technique that you can see more samples of on Zentagle.com
Basically it is black and white doodling, either by hand or you can use your stamps, I combined. This uses the Time Well Spent set and some miscellaneous mini stamps, and a black marker. It was very time consuming and my hand is numb but I was happy that I tried something new!

Fabulous, Joanne! Love the effect! I was going to play along today, but my neighbor got me involved in trying to locate a missing dog's master! I ended up dog sitting this poor lost dog! Anyhow, the do is back home and all is well!

This technique really makes an awesome card...I was too chicken to try it (plus I already had shopping plans with my daughter today). It was fascinating to check out the gallery...maybe one day...

Geez, first Jenny and now you....I feel so inadequate! I like that you combined stamps with your doodling - MAYBE I could do that...This is so awesome! Great job!

Too cool! Great job combining stamps and doodling. If you didn't get any of my emails today, we may have to resort to the phone or chatting on Facebook.

I really like it, Joanne! So striking! Yes, I can definitely see why your hand was numb. Mine would have been in major, major pain! Beautiful!

This is just amazing and fabulously done, Joanne! I thought you used dp....and to think you stamped and doodled your own is just wonderful with this technique! Great card! I wonder if I have the patience for this? LOL! Looks great!
