Zentangle Vases for The Rubber Cafe
Today I am using Zentangle patterns to decorate the vase in this set. You can always stamp the vase onto designer paper and cut out and apply for a paper-pieced effect, but I have found much fun in using Zentangle patterns and doodling on my cards of late.
For this vase I stamped the image onto white cardstock and then colored it with Copic Markers G46, G43, R22, R21.
Next I added the Zentangle patterns as shown. The top portion of the vase is simply a series of circles in varying sizes. I draw with a 01 Micron pen.
The bottom portion of the vase is a pattern called Nekton. Basically it is a series of 4 straight parallel lines in varying directions. I then used pencil and Copic markers to add shading to the bottom of the vase. You can see that I shaded a portion of the vase above and how much depth it adds to the design.
The second card I stamped the vase on the pink designer paper and then tangled on it. I only colored certain circles in the dotted portion for a totally different effect.
The greenery images in each card are stamped directly onto the designer paper and then colored with YG67 and accented with a white gel pen.
The flowers on each card are stamped on white cardstock and colored with R29, R24, R22 and R21. I then fussy cut them and popped them up on foam tape for dimension.
I added some of the rayon ribbon to each card as well as some Q and Co Sunflower Gems.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek...I'll be back next week with a fun card using the Vellum Embossing Technique!
