I am so excited to be taking part in this blog hop for the first time even though I've been a member of ESAD for about three years !
I have to admit that the stamp I used for this first card I had hardly used but always was wanting to use it to try out the zen tangle technique . I guess I was nervous to try this and afraid of making a huge mess of it ! I'm so thrilled with how , this , my very first attempt turnerd out . It's really quite easy all you'd do is doodle in all of the separate sections of the flower . When I was done doodling Imounted my   flower that I had cut out with my paper snips onto a Basic Black circle cut using the Circle Framlits this was mounted on a piece of Go Wild DSP which was then mounted on a Basic Black card base . I stamped the greeting  on Whisper White and mounted it into a Basic Black piece.

 Isn't t  this  flower just gorgeous ? I stamped the flower  , the butterfly and the sentiment onto Night Of Navy cardstock using Versamark and heat embossed them in white .   I then took a few drops of White craft re inker and washed over  rhe flower image with my Aqua painter . I dried this off using my heat tool  and added back some blue using a drop of Bremuda Bay re inker and again my Aqua painter . A few rhinestones completed my card . This technique is called  Whitewashing .

 For my last card I used the Cups and Kettles framelits and marching stamp set . I was inspired by a set of mugs I use for my class ladies . First , I cut the cups and the kettle out with the framelits  and then stamped using Tip Top Taupe onto Very Vanilla to create the patterns on the cups . The background was created m using the Softly Falling textured embossing folder which is thankfully not retiring !
