ASIAN INSPIRED ZENTANGLE

What fun! Splitcoast has a challenge this week "Ways to Use It" and it inspired us to 'doodle', which is what I called it in all of my bored moments, only now it has a new name, 'Zentangle'.  Don't think I cheated too much, I used the All a Flutter stamp from SU! and stamped it twice. Then I 'doodled' around the stamped images with inspiration from the other entries. Fun and different, give it try!

This is the front...


And this is the inside...

I am also entering this in the following challenges that greatly assisted me in pulling this card together...

1. Creaetalicious Challenge - Asian Theme (red, black and the zentangle drawing)
2. Mark's Finest Papers - use an animal (butterfly)
3. Raise the Bar - It's All About the Bag (I was inspired by DT Sparkle's bag)
4. Res-Q-Challenge - Time for an X-Ray (OK, honestly, I didn't see the DT card until I had
                                     already decided to do a Zentangle!)
5. Sew Many Challenges - Anything goes
6. Crafty Card Makers - finish the inside
7. No Time to Stamp - Gone Askew(I tilted the Zentangle)
8. The Secret Crafter - NO Designer Paper
9. Mojo Monday Sketch - the sketch I used
10. ABC  Challenge - '"U" - unused stash, I have had the black/white brads for-ever and the ribbon too! Just needed the right challenge!
11. The Fab & Funky - to make your own embellishment, the flower
12. Lots To Do Challenge - Flourish and swirls, hope my hand drawn ones count!
13. Paper Take Weekly - Embellish with flowers
14. Color Chef Challenge - Bamboo, Red, Black (sorry it's not a light red, but it could be darker?!)
15. If the Shoe Fits - Colors Black, Red, Khaki
16. Pile It On - get out of the box,  I went way out on this one!
17. Splitcoast, Ways to Use It challenge - Zentangle
18. 365 Cards Day 80 - Keep it To Yourself, Friendship (sentiment needs to be on inside) and the main reason I made this card is to support my DD, Kim, on her 2nd career as a DT member at 365 Cards!


And here's the funny part of this card. This is what it looked like last night right before I went to bed!

I really shouldn't try making cards after 9 PM!
Have a great day - off to get some yard work done.
