Zentangled Sunflower

Happy Tuesday Everyone and thank you for popping by.

My card today was made using a Woodware clear  stamp.

I used Promarkers to colour my image, two shades of yellow for the petals, two shades of green for the leaves and an orange for the centre.

I've not done a lot of zentangling although I do find it very relaxing and will do more.  I used a fine Micron pen.

After colouring the flower I did the doodling then coloured the black areas with a Promarker.

I rounded the corners and coloured the outside with yellow Distress ink.

The sentiment is from a Woodware 'retirement' set of stamps.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Your Zentangle work is beautiful and I love sunflowers too. A perfect card for a retirement.
I can see how it would be relaxing.

As for the poppy's even though I always wear a handmade poppy I also always buy a paper one too, force of habit. A few of my friends who have bought my crochet poppies also come back every year as I alter them slightly. This year I have also bought ones with the RN and RAF on. (I am not very obsessive really it is just a cause I like to support!)

Hugs Erika. x

Hi Barb,
what super zentangle work.
This looks so perfect, and wonderfully created too.
Not tried Zentangle, but I must have a go sometime as I do like to try something new.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

The colored zentangles look wonderful and I admire your patience for doing all that doodling!

Wonderful tangles. I don't find this at all easy to do, and my efforts have looked nothing so fine as your beautiful sunflower. It's just gorgeous, and I love the center bits. The leaf shading is wonderful too. Great work! It is relaxing, if I don't stress about how awful mine looks when I'm doing it...TFS & Hugs
