Zentangle Flower (posted by Claire)

Hi there, Claire here with a card made using the new Tangled Garden stamps and my first proper attempt at zentangling too.


I stamped the flower 3 times and cut out the layers to decoupage the flower. I also stamped and cut out some leaves. The card was very simple to make I took a square of white card and drew a border around the edges and then spent a happy hour zentangling in the border. I then added dots around the border (I have to confess that I'm a very messy crafter and had got a couple of spodges on the nice white card so I added the dots to camouflage my little mistakes. I quite like the effect so perhaps it was a happy accident)

I used black card to mat my zentangle border and then added the flower and leaves with silicone glue. I also stamped the sentiment which is from the clear stamp set 'Best Relative Ever'.
To finish off I added some dotty black and white ribbon.

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you're getting lots of ideas for all this months new stamps

  3. Delightful to see your tangled borders & it looks brilliant with the dotting - definitely a happy accident that one for the black dots on white echo the polka dot ribbon in reverse as it were. the layering adds a lovely touch too.
