February Artist Challenge ClubScrap

February Artist Team Challenge
Alpha Stencils - Zentangle

February is already over?...man this month whipped by fast!!  It has warmed up just enough to melt some snow and make it nice a slippery around here.  So its still a good time to stay snug and warm inside being crafty!!

The February Challenge is to use these stencils on your layouts, cards or other projects.

I decided to try my hand at Zentangle with these - I think they turned out pretty good!!  Here is 3 cards I made:
This first one is black cardstock using a white gel pen.

 This second one is white cardstock with purple and teal metallic gel pens.
 This third one is white cardstock with purple and pink Sharpie pens.

Black ink pen
Various gel or sharpie pens

Grab a piece of cardstock and your alpha stencils - Using black pen (on white cardstock) or white gel pen (on black cardstock) write out your word as shown:
Then draw various lines across the cardstock every which way, creating quadrants as shown:
Now there is more than a jillion ideas all over the internet for 'filling' the quadrants - I picked a few 'easy' ones and then just filled in the quadrants as shown:

Here is the final cards matted - I think they really turned out pretty good - I have never done the zentangle really before - its actually quite fun!! For the little 'circles' in 2 of the quads - I used another one of Clubscrap's stencils, just so my circles would be nice an round!

On this one, I also used one of ClubScraps retreat stencil to have 'flowers' as sections for doing the zentangle in:
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial and decide to give it a try - definitely a fun look for a card!!
