Tangled Bloom

CAS on Sunday has challenged us to use black,white and one colour this week. I decided to add Daffodil Delight Blendabilities to my zentangled bloom. SUO Challenges are after a Clean & Simple card and Colour Me are after Daffodil and a neutral.

Zentangling is a technique first brought to my attention by my downline, Angela T. who sent me a link. Next day at work, I noticed a big display that the art teacher at school had worked on with the grade 5 and 6 children. I haven't been involved in the art room this year, so often don't notice what they are making. I HAD to give it a go!

It's very relaxing sitting and doodling away, and it's probably something you get better at with practice. I found the trickiest part was thinking up contrasting patterns for Blended Bloom.

I used the Textured Impressions Arrows Embossing Folder to match the geometric feel of this card and Sassy Salutations seemed to suit it very well also.

Cheers
