Thursday's Dream Schemes/Black and White with a POP!!!

For the month of May challenge we are doing either graduations or/and "black and white with a POP". So I am again showing you one of Wayne's Zentangle cards. Couldn't resist showing off his artwork when it is so appropriate for the challenge. I put the card together and chose the beautiful relaxing purple paper from Hanko Designs. The tsumugi lavender paper from Japan is wonderful to use in cardmaking. Although for this application today I didn't use any moisture on the paper, it does have the characteristic of absorbing paints, pastes, inks etc. without a lot of warpage. The ribbon under the design is a black and white woodtone look that I found at a big box store and the three black brads at the bottom repeat the dots in the new stylized dahlia stencil design (LG743). 

To achieve this look Wayne first outlines the stencil design on white cardstock using a #01 Micron Pigma pen from Sakura. Then removes the stencil and begins drawing the different zentangle patterns inside the stencil design with the same pen. 

Hope you'll find time these last few days of May to join our challenge. We haven't had as many of you play this month because it's that super busy time of year with end of the year school activities including graduations. But if you don't have your own blog  just email a picture of your creation...to: lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com and I will present it on my blog or you can link up your blog to mr. linky below and we will come to see your work and leave a comment. You could win two stencils this month: LG713 Flourish and LS90 Celebrate. In the meantime be sure to look at today's creations from the Dream it UP team listed below:
