Zentangle Background Card

I have been on a Zentangle kick lately.  The link takes you directly to the “official” website, but not all designs like this have to be officially called a zentangle.  Basically, the twists and patterns create the fun designs.  At first they seem impossible to draw, but if you watch a couple YouTube videos about the process, it becomes much more simple.  The whole mindfulness idea behind it really resonates with me too.  Then my friend Cathy told me about Stamptangle stamps.  Pre-stamped tangles to color.  A 40% off sale and I grabbed several designs.  I made the card below for my Happy Mail Card Club using Copic markers and Blendabilities.  It is hard to tell in the image, but there is a crackled finish on top from Distress Rock Candy.  The “hello friend” is just a sticker from a really old set I had.  I thought the black cardstock really made the image pop.  Just a fun, colorful card!

There will be plenty of stamptangle cards and Zentangles in my future!
