TIO #66 - Zentangle

Thanks for all the dreams last week... there were some beauties.. This week xin nian kuaile - happy new year, but we are not doing that!!! neither are we doing  Valentine's...  In the same spirit as I always have, I wanted to explore something different and zentangling was new to me this week... I looked it up on YouTube and you will find many wonderful demos... I recommend you look at it, as it is such fun and so settling!!!

So that's the challenge this week... to zentangle, but to use at least one REAL stamp... this piece was coloured using happy birthday big and juicy and a speedball - my pen was not waterproof so I could not use my wonderful distress inks!! The stamp was from the set Avant garde, from Stamp in the Hand.  I hope you will join in and ENJOY!!!
Love and light
Frankie

Interesting challenge Frankie - your tag is superb. Enjoyed taking part although I don't know if my zentangle is how it should be as this is the first time I have tried.
