Hearts Zentangle

Hi there everyone.  I have been bitten by the bug...zentangle that is..lol.  I have made another card using a style of zentangle I have seen on line and I used a piece of scrap which I think must have been used to roll off my brayer during a gel printing session, and which has been sitting for a long while waiting for an occasion to be used.

I pencilled the design on to the piece of inked scrap freehand, with a bit of rubbing out and correction to get the heart shapes the way I wanted them, and then went over the lines with my 03 size Black Micron Pen.  I don't feel confident enough yet to go in with the pen from the start but being someone who likes to be as accurate as possible I find it easier with the lines established with the pencil first..not quite the idea of doodling but I will try to be more relaxed as I improve.  I then used a pink, purple and white Inktense pencil with a waterbrush to add some colour.  I finished by adding a sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink and heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and added it to a 7" x 5" card.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.

  1. A great anniversary card, lovely to see some tangling. I've not done any of that for ages but became quite involved at one time and found it a very relaxing thing to do.

  3. Like Val I did have a go at tangling years ago. I always drew in pencil first and then in the black pen. I like your very original heart design and the colours. Hugs Mrs A.

  10. I's a beautiful design and the colours match perfectly with your lovely background! I can understand your hesitation to work directly on the paper with the Micronpen, I would draw lines first too. Wonderful card!
