A Zentangle Bookmark-sized Card | #ArtForTheCreativeSoul

Having fun today, combining drawing and cardmaking! Zentangle inspired drawing of course.

This card is 2½” x 7″ in size, and the paper I drew on is a 2½” x 6″ piece of Canson Imagine paper.

I chose to use Sandswirl and Holly tangle patterns in the design. After all, they were my tangle pattern and fragment of the week! Plus a couple of other bits and bobs – flowers, crystals, a bit of mooka and a sprinkling of flux.

I did make a boo-boo though. I didn’t let the silver ink dry long enough before I used an eraser. I checked that it was touch-dry, but it wasn’t eraser-dry. Ho hum, dash and darn it!

I used the same metallic silver to draw a border and add a little bit of embellishment. The embellishment is under my fingers, duh!

The sketchy diagram to the right are the dimensions for making an envelope for the card. Red means cut out, blue add glue.

Of course I made a video for this, and you can see it by following this link. (It’s a new link – I managed to re-upload yesterday’s video as today’s one. Duh go me! It seems to be one of them days…)
