I was pondering over my unsuccessful hunt for a stamp with a large open flower image when I remembered my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die. I found that the largest flower is the perfect size for a Zentangle tile so I've die-cut myself a cardboard template to draw round. It's proved perfect for the rest of my colouring exercises.

As I said (in my previous post) colour introduces a very different aspect into tangling & it's certainly one that I wish to explore further. I'm quite drawn to the idea of monochrome tiles like my final one where shading is carried out using a coloured pencil & a dry paper stump - in fact this is also my tile for the current Chocolate Baroque Zentangle Group's Monotangle challenge.
