Zentangle Flower

Hello everyone, I have a project to share using one of the new individual cling mounted flowers currently on offer on the Chocolate Baroque website. There are six different designs and they are approximately 3.5 inches across, all mounted on cling mount, ready for you to start using straight away. These beautiful large flowers are perfect as centrepieces for your cards, and are sure to brighten anyone's day. I have chosen to use the Swirl Centre Flowerhead to create my card, as I love the overall design of this particular flower.

I created a wrinkle free distress background on a piece of watercolour card, using Salty Ocean Distress Ink, and then edged the background with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. I stamped the flowerhead twice onto a spare piece of watercolour card, using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I also stamped a large leaf from the Tangled Garden stamp set twice onto the watercolour card. I coloured the images with Copic markers and added shading with pencils.

I cut the images out, and stuck them to the card, creating two layers on the flower. Once the flower was in place, I added some Glossy Accents to the centre of the flower and left it to dry. I drew some zentangle details on the background using a fine black permanent pen. I added a sentiment from the Amazing Birthday clear stamp set, and matted the background onto some black card to finish.

 This particular flowerhead lends itself to Zentangle so well with the centre swirls, and the petal designs. Fescu is the tall design that I have used with a scroll added for variation, and you could also try incorporating Printemps as a beautiful background idea. Please click on my links to take you to the website for instructions on how to draw the two Zentangle designs, and a whole host of other ideas.

Thanks for stopping by, xx

Nice seeing you add some tangling - they really finish your design & complement the stamped images so well. As always your wrinkle free background is masterful.
