Guest Post - Zentangle Autumn by Angela Drummond

Today sees Angela's second guest post using the Autumn Poppy stamp set and this week she has treated us to something very special. For all of you who love Zentangling I just know you will adore this beautiful card.

I stamped the image with Archival black ink and then sat and tangled the open spaces.TIP: It's up to you how complicated you want your tangles to be, but it is best to keep it simpler in the smaller areas otherwise you will lose both the Zentangle pattern and the stamped image.

I cut the image out and matted on black card. I then cut a piece of white card to fit my card base, stamped the edge with black ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder (this helps if you get extra spots as you don't see them).

To finish I matted and layered the pieces and used mounting foam to give more dimension to the main image.

Hope you like it

  5. Super art work. I really like the black and white work

  6. This stamp lends itself perfectly to zentangling techniques, and the black and white is such a classic colour for a card too. A fantastic result. x

  7. Beautifull stylish card! I wanted to say I don't have the time or patience to zentangle, but I think I wouldn't notice it taking time... I'd just draw a few lines, and then a few more, and then some things here and there... Looking at your card, thinking about the process relaxes me allready, haha!
    "the greatest gift you can give, is the gift of Attention" - this card definetely got attention, hopefuly the receiver will notice it's drawn and not stamped!
