Another addiction!

I recently watched with fascination the video Zenspirations Patterning Techniques by Joanne Fink on Sakura of America’s website. After watching the video I decided to try what I had learned. I printed a simple daisy stamp that I found in the dollar bin at one of the crafts store onto Heavenly White cardstock from PaperTemptress and using a black pen began making patterns and then spot colored it with gel pens. I mounted my creation on embossed Lemondrop Pop Tone cardstock, also from PaperTemptress, and added touches of glossy accents to finish the card. Now I have another addiction, doodling patterns!

  12. Tammy you have done a fabulous job with what I know as zentangles. The touch of colour in various places really is stunning, and the yellow background and black is a wonderful contrast. In short your card is fabulous and I love it!
