The cheerful stamp pad challenge 109 2nd week


The cheerful stamp pad challenge 109 is 'zentangle' and this is the second week. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in with your entries here.

For my design card for week 2 I added more zentangle to Courtney McAnsh's zetangle elephant (click the link to see the original), kindly supplied by the Sweet Pea Stampers as sponsors of the challenge. The backing paper is some I've had for ages from PDA paper card & craft, on to which I added a cut out of faux black crocodile. The strip across the top is recycled from some craft packaging and the ribbon/bow is Papermania. I thought it was appropriate to add the Belated Birthday Wishes as elephants never forget ... but sometimes we humans do!

For my inspiration card I used Lacy Sunshine's Gemma's spring flower love, kindly provided by the sponsor of this month's challenge. I coloured with chameleon pens and die cut with a Nellie Snellen die and sponged the edges with worn lipstick distress ink. I cut two shapes with Die-namic fishtail flag dies, using papers printed from Buckwell Crafts digital papers. Organza flowers from were Create & Craft some time ago and the sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
