'Zentangle' Thanks

Hello Friends!!!

For today I am playing along with Make It Monday. Their challenge this week is all about dangles. I decided to go the Zentangle route. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I have tried my hand at Zentangle. click here If you are not familiar with Zentangles. 
It will explain in much more detail how it works. 
This is my first shot at it, so laugh too hard. 
I used a stamp from the 'What the Doodle'
series from PTI called Waves Mini Stamp Set.
This wave stamp made a perfect starting point for the dangles.
The dangles were stamped using a motley of tiny stamps from my stash.
All the black you see was stamped and then traced for different line weights.  
Challenges Entered:
Make It Monday: #275- Stamped Dangles

I think this card turned out well. I did have inspiration, of course, from Pinterest. I wanted to see some examples of Zentangles and WOW! was I inspired. Click here to see which Zentangle inspired this project. What made this design so pretty was using the wave stamp by PTI. It provided separation of space and gave an opportunity to color the top white. 

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon, but until then take care and happy stamping.

All the best,
