I wanted to create another card for Misti's CAS396 Pumpkin Patch challenge. I have been wanting to create a piece of ZentangleŽ Art that reflects the fall season and thought the card would work for her challenge.
As you can see, the card contains two pumpkins which go well with a fall leaf. To create the card, I used the Sizzix Leaf Die to cut out a leaf from Solar White card stock. I retained the negative to use for the card front. I began creating my ZentangleŽ art piece by stamping an autumn leaf in the center of the leaf cutout.
To create my tangles, I decided to not use an official string, which is the norm. I let the stamped leaf be my guide. I selected several official tangle patterns, got into a Zen frame of mind, and started tangling. After drawing my selected official tangles, I used Copic Sketch Markers to color the tangles that create my leaf.
Remember the negative that I put to the side? I embossed it with a vines EF, attached it to the card front, inserted the ZentangleŽ art piece into the negative, and added two pumpkins to complete the card.
I hope you enjoy the card, and I greatly appreciate any comments.

I just came down from a visit to my youngest daughter's room ...... disaster ..... and I don't just say that. I am pretty sure coming here, looking at your beautiful card, saved me from blowing up. :-)
It is just so gorgeous!!!
