Flower tag and Zentangles

I received my stamps from PTI yesterday and had a chance to make a quick tag. I stamped a script background in Memento Pear Tart, then stamped the flower in black, it is colored with copics YG93 & 95, they do not blend well on the manilla tag but I had already committed to the color. The bells are colored with a whit gel pen. The butterfly was stamped once on the tag and once on white then colored with copics R21, and 23. The sentiment is from Hero Arts stamped in black.

I wanted to share something else I made this weekend it is called a Zentangle, you can learn more about it here:  Basically it is a doodle that you make using various patterns, there are tons of sites dedicated to this doodle art. Patterns are endless and they are fun and relaxing to make. The other good thing is it is a very inexpensive hobby. The only supplies you need it decent paper, a good pen and some free time. If you google zentangle you will be able to see some amazing works of art, some are colored but most are in black in white with shading.  The one I did is called a Mandela and I am excited to make another.
