Zensday's New Challenges

I'm posting this for two different challenges. The Diane Clancy challenge for S-T-U of the ABCs challenge. 

I used Starmap, Ticking and Undling...the three together make a window on the universe with the Undling as flowing curtains and the Ticking as an unraveling valance over the Starmap.

I also made this do double duty for the diva's #218 challenge of "White on Black". I used a Sakura white gel pen...it helps if you use a lighter pressure and keep moving, or the ink tends to puddle or blur. I used 80# card stock which is a black linen that I happened to have on hand. The diva, Laura Harms, is giving us the choice of doing the white on black or the opportunity to do a ZIA with a found object. Would love to do something with that, but not sure when I'll have time...it might not happen until next week. The tangles used were: Starmap, Ticking and Undling. Go to tanglepatterns.com to find the step-by-step instructions from the creators of these patterns.


Also Becky Robertson at Toula Boula is giving a challenge to make a card for someone you love and post it on her Monday's Muse. This month her Monday's Muse is called "Love Notes". Click HERE if you are interested in knowing more, she has a beautiful website and blogs regularly, she often posts to the diva's challenges and has some interesting information on this that and the other, an enjoyable read because she really writes well. The card can be made with altered art, fine art, stencils, rubber stamps or pretty much any medium you want to use as long as it's a card for someone you care about. Mine is for a friend who's been going through a difficult time. The "friend" tag was done with shrink plastic. The daisy stencil (LL548) was done with the double glitter technique and the raindrops stencil (LJ905) was paste-embossed with pearlescent embossing paste (DPP) on top of acetate then adhered over the top of the glittered card. If you are interested in the Double Glitter technique email me at lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com and I will send you the instructions in a pdf format. The links for where to find the stencils in this paragraph go to my Mom's website stencilwithstyle.com

Hoping you have a wonderful time tangling and stamping and stenciling this week! Would love to hear your comments. Wayne just finished his post for the diva's challenge #218, so here is his Flikr link.

Love your white on black tile. Brings to mind a map of the heavens!

Hi Lynell, I've been having trouble getting my comment to publish when I use my tablet but I'm home now and back on the old PC, which may be elderly but IS - she says with fingers crossed - reliable. I like the mix of patterns and you have managed lovely clear lines on this.
I've been using more of your stencils too, which has been fun. I'll put them on the blog when complete. As always, good to see what you've come up with.

Lovely black tile! Great linework!

HeidiSue said...

ooh starmap on black! that's very cool! Nice work, all around.

Antonine Koval said...

You really did a great job with that white pen on black. Your lines are so even and flowing! Love the Starmap.

Indira said...

Lovely! White on black truly shines.

Suzanne Fluhr said...

I'm impressed by your white on black tile. You achieved great control with your white pen. I find the white tangling implements at my disposal to be quite less than satisfactory.

Lily M. said...

Both are beautiful :)

Donald Wilka said...

Your white on black tile turned out well. Nice line work.

Sandra Sch. said...

Your white-on-black tile is great, I love the Undling pattern in this way, it's just one of my favourites but I never tried it in white on black. Great effect I think :-)
But also Starmap is a great idea to use it this way.
Very nice tile :-)

Becky said...

Good morning, Lynell,
Beautiful work with the white on black and I just love Starmap! I can never find a good enough white pen do do the black tiles, such a shame.

Your Love Note is wonderful too, such a lovely card! I especially love the color of the flowers. I'm so glad your playing along!

Jean Chaney said...

Your tile is fabulous and I LOVED your card. As a card maker myself, I enjoyed going to the links you provided to see all the wonderful stencils available. I will send you an email for that PDF too!

I like the whiite on black very much, specially starmap.

Kristinne said...

Wow, I love the 3D effect on the right part of the black on white tile. I must try it!

Gloria J Zucaro said...

I love your work this week. What a great time to use Starmap! Good inform on your cards materials too.

BurningRubber said...

This is really cool. I like the white on black. It really pops.

Stacie Dowdy said...

Love the White on Black, it has so much movement.

David Hunter said...

A wonderful Challenge Tile. You did such a beautiful job handling the tricky white gel pen. Beautiful contouring line work.

Suzanne Durville said...

I really like the way you used the different values - with the darker, 3D lines balancing out the more open str map. Lovely!

Val Brandon said...

I loved your white on black tiles. The light and dark aspects balance really well. Thanks for sharing.

Annette Carlo said...

Lynell, your tile and your card are just stunning!!!! Thanks for all the info! I had just popped over to Becky's blog and read up, on all of her fine arts!!! I'm going to have check out her Monday Muse Challenge, as I always need a card for something!
Thank you for all your sunshine you bring to my blog! We actually were in your neck of the woods tonight! We ate at Sushi Miguels. Good sushi!! Have a great weekend! :0) Annette

Ilse said...

Starmap is a great choice on a black tile! Just like Undling, and Ticking as well by the way. Haha, great tile!

Annie Taylor said...

Very impressive 'Window on the Universe' - as Ilse says, Starmap looks absolutely stunning here. Love them both. Axxx
