Pink Butterfly

Space is very limited in the Romahome so crafting is difficult, but this time when I went away I did some Zentangle, as it doesn't take up much space or equipment and so is easy to do.   I used to do it as a child, but then it didn't have a fancy name, it was just doodling!  I haven't done any for years, in fact I think the last time was when I was at college, a very long time ago!  I love doing it, so I looked at this weeks Colours and Sketches blog and saw the colour challenge so thought I would have a go and feature one of my Zentangle panels.  It took me as long time to get round to doing the card because I have been away from it for so long and I needed to get my head back into crafting mode. I did enjoy it although I am not very happy with the result, but thought I would submit it anyway.  Just to get back in there!.   So here it is.....

Again it hasn't photographed too well.  The butterfly is a Sheena Douglas stamp and I coloured it with Melon Mambo ink painted on and I can assure you that it was symmetrical, The left wing is the same as the right.  I then coloured the body grey using a grey water colour pencil as I don't have the Grey ink and I also coloured two panels in grey  the top left hand one and the bottom right with bubbles. The rest of the panel I sponged in Old Olive, again it has come out in the photo very pale.  the whole panel is mounted on Melon Mambo card.  I love this colour combination.  I have looked at the design team and the entries and there are some stunning cards entered.  Oh well at least I am back on the horse, for a while anyway.  Must have a go at some of the other challenges now.  Make My Monday silhouettes looks good, but which stamp set to use... decisions, decisions.
See you again soon.  Viji. x
