Let's Zentangle!

Good morning everyone and Happy Friday!

It's Alphabet Challenge time and today's letter is... Z for Zentangle!

Now, I have no idea how to Zentangle but I gave it a try anyway and here's my card...
I started by stamping the background with the Stampendous 'Dream Text' stamp & VersaMark ink and then dusted it with chalk. I used a couple different sizes of Sakura Micron pens to create the image... oh and a little help from a Flow Chart ruler :o) I used it to draw the outline of the flowers and leaves... then, I went back and added a few basic zentangle patterns. I have to admit, it was very fun and I even like how funky my hand-drawn butterflies turned out! Next, I colored the image with a couple of Sharpie markers... I didn't want to use my Copics on VersaMark ink... added the twine and button and it's done!

Now head on over to the main challenge blog to check out the rest of the DT
fabulous cards!
