Awesome Zen Crests

I sometimes like to add Zentangle onto a card, and these simple patterns are not hard to do. This post also appears on the Magenta Blog today.

I started with a piece of watercolor cardstock and placed masks from Crests 02 and the small Temari mask onto my panel. I sprinkled some Nuance powder onto the cardstock and spritzed lightly with water. Since some of the powder landed onto my masks, I flipped them over onto the cardstock to make a mirror image.

I added some background with Memento Gray Flannel ink through the Waves stencil, using a finger dauber. I then added some Zentangle to two of the images with a Micron black 01 pen. I added the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I die cut the panel to 5.25" x 4" using the Stitched Rectangle die from Die-namics MFT463 Blueprints 13, and mounted it onto a piece of So Silk Glamour Green cardstock.
