More Sepia Tangling


Back to the button book and this pre-stamped page. This is a commercial stamp, one of those softer foam ones. I used a stamp pad with an aged brown ink.


And here it is transformed with just a little tangling and shading. I'm discovering that part of the appeal of Zentangling for me is that it is pure fantasy. Some of my favorites create these weird little worlds that are sometimes Escheresque.

I like the combination of the stamp and the tangling.

Your sepia designs are so eye catching.....the unexpected color is so appealing to me.

Thanks! I do really like starting with a stamped image - a different sort of exercise than just combining different Zentangles to fill shapes created by a random string (if you've read of any of the instructions, you understand that terminology). The sepia keeps me from getting bored and fits in with my usual tendency to be drawn to the rich browns and rusts so prevalent in my fabric stash.
