Zentangle for Carina

 I was stuck for an idea for my daughter Carina's birthday card this year, no inspiration was forthcoming!  Then "bingo" Zentangle!!  I used one of the talented Ali Reeve's masks for the outline and then just got completely inspired by the shapes.  I left the design black and white as the original zentangle concept and decided to mount it just the same.  It was a little bare so I have added a huge bow in lovely black satin wired ribbon that has a gold edge.  This just lifts the card and gave me somewhere to put the greeting!!  The other reason for doing it this way is, if at a later date she wants to display the card as a picture, she can just take the bow off and pop it into a frame - job done!  Hope she likes it!

A better view of the huge bow!

The inside had to get the Zentangle treatment too!
Thanks for stopping by hope you have enjoyed looking at my zentangling.  I would love it if you left me a comment on this blog.....until next time.......
