Mr Zentangle Owl

Morning everyone. Hope you've all had a good week & have lots of crafty plans for the weekend?. I'm hoping to have a day of crafting tomorrow & I've gathered a nice stash of crafty goodies from the shop to try & come up with some new projects for future workshops.
My card today is another Zentangle card as we have another workshop this Thursday using the Dreamweaver stencils for Zentangle.
This particular owl stencil proved to be very popular with our group last week, not surprised really, as owls still continue to be a very popular theme in both our craft & gift sections of the shop.
This was actually my first attempt at Zentangle & I quite liked the result.
Once I'd finished the owl I simply mat & layered him onto black & white card stock & patterned paper. I die cut some flowers & layered them up, punched a strip of white card with a Martha Stewart border punch, stamped the sentiment from Indigoblu & edged the black card with white pearl cosmic shimmer pva. I also added some faux stitching .
One of my New Year's resolutions was to enter more blog challenges, so I'm going to enter this card in 2 today.
 The first is Country View Challenges where the theme is Monochromatic
& the second is Crafty Cardmakers and more where the theme is Black & White & you can win goodies from Woodware.
Pop over & take a look, there's some fab projects on both.
That's it from me today, I'm off to work in the shop.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
See you soon
