                           Challenge #106 - Doodle

As soon as I saw "doodle " as the challenge word I immediately thought of Zentangle ! I've only ever tried this technique once and have never taught it in class thinking it might be too over whelming for some ! I may rethink that because it's really fun and not that difficult ! The next challenge was to find a stamp image suitable and our Lucky Elephant fits the bill perfectly !
After I was happy with my Zentangling I mounted my elephant on some Black Glimmer paper from my hoarded stash , stamped the sentiment above him and onto my Bermuda Bay mat repeatedly . I tied some striped 1/8 "  Bermuda Bay ribbon around some of the thicker  striped grosgrain also from my stash and gave him a sparky black eye with a rhinestone coloured with a black sharpie . I think he looks pretty cute and am off to see what else I can create with him - this being the first time he's seen ink !

  1. Hello Cheryl: I also thought of Zentangle as soon as I saw the Code Word for this challenge. I discovered this awesome doodling technique a couple of years ago while browsing Pinterest. It's fun and relaxing and really surprisingly easy to do, all it takes is doodling.
    Love your Zentangled Elephant, what a fabulous image do cove in little doodles. I too like images with enough space for my doodling, the colors you chose to frame this one are beautiful.
    Great card.
