Black and White Sten-tangle Card


I am sharing another Sten-tangle card I made for a sketch challenge at my last stamp club meeting. For this one I used thin black markers and a variety of brass and plastic stencils. The bear and the other brass stencils are from Dreamweaver. The stamp is from Repeat Impressions. When you Zentangle, you doodle free hand, but I am not a good doodler, nor do I have the patience for it. But when you Sten-tangle. you use stencils for atleast the start and I used them for the inside of all the pieces too. Easy and fun. The hardest part is finding enough small patterned stencils.

I am entering this card in the challenge at Allsorts to use stencils or masking, and the Anything Goes challenge at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge.
