Cards: Two, very different for today

..first one uses a paper-napkin background layer. I was really surprised to find the artist's name, Kathryn White, on the back of the napkin. I have a number of Kathryn's prints hanging here at home, so no wonder the pack of paper-napkins had taken my eye.

Textured off-white paper is from Paper Source/Australia, the grosgrain ribbon was white, and dyed with stamping-pad inks. Sentiment stamp for the tag is Hero-Arts/CL140, a delightful set.

Then I put myself to the test with some zentangle-inspired-art again (since my eye surgery was only last week.. sight is good enough, but drops and ointment make it a little blurry at times).

I'd used a rubber-stamp for the kimono shape and was sure it was from a certain company, but on checking with their online catalogue it wasn't listed there; so I best not say who I 'think' it belongs to. Stamped on the reverse of the paper and cut it out, ready for some penned designs.

A paper-cutting for the inside of this card, one I'd cut at another time; was a quick fix for the inside of this card. The pattern is from Paper Cutting by Alison, Adornments package.

So these could each qualify for differing labels, cards, zentangle-inspired-art, and paper-cutting! I decided 'cards' it will be for this post.

Your embossed paper package on napkin is simply stunning, but the Kimono is beyond belief! It's so hard for me to believe you are just starting this tangling art - but you are definitely no novice. I'm totally in awe! And your "quick fix" for the inside of the card would have taken me the rest of my life! sigh. . .
Beautiful work as always, Carole. Just beautiful.

Oh my gosh...you have the coolest cards!! Very creative and interesting. the Zentangle designs on your kimono are gorgeous. I've never done or studied a Zentangle. I'll watch for more on your site!

Love the kimono card Carole. Another way using tangle art with rubber stamps. Well done as usual!
