It's a BIG stretch for me.. Zentangle My Besties Style

OK, so this last week or so i've been really stretching my crafting skills..  I used to doodle all the time, but now there is Zentangle..i still think it is doodling...but it's really awesome to look at.  I pinned several images to get inspired to make this card.

I feel like i am defacing the My Besties image i used..i went as far as trying to design the lips and now she has teeth.. i drew a couple of lines on her lips and my angel looked like a i went with it and colored in more black and gave her teeth.. So i am calling those Zen teeth.  I drew inside of her irises, her hair, wings, the was helpful and reduced some stress...

I will put up the original sweet angel at the bottom... For now here is what i created using this technique..oh yeah, i needed to enlarge this image to 6" in order to draw inside the lines of the image.

  2. Fabulous not a zentangler myself either so it was a bit of a challenge for me too Good luck with the uk besties challenge - Carol UK DT x

  3. Well, you did a good job, although I think that image is just too sweet to defile with zentanglar. Perhaps it is the OCD in me, but I don't like zentanglar images at all. That being said, I'll repeat that you've done a great job!
