Organic Chocolate Baroque in a Zendala Dare

October's Challenge (Number 19) for the Chocolate Baroque Zentangle Group is to create a tile or ZIA based upon organic tangles. It was when I saw the centre of Erin's Zendala template #75 for this week that I realised it would give me a super starting point using the tangle Cyme.

tangles: Cyme, Flux, Meer

I used the smallest of Erin's templates, initially thinking I would create a conventional Zentangle tile, but I was struck by how floral the whole looked without the outside circular linework. One thing led to another & so it was fussy cut & mounted onto some pearlescent black cardstock die-cut with a circular Spellbinders Nestabilites die (Standard Circles Small).

Love the look of this one. Can it really be a month since I was going to have a go at the wings one?? Time flies - pardon the pun.

Only a copy/past type comment I am afraid Paula, hands and fingers not playing the computer game at the moment, but I still like to come and have a peek at new posts, say hello and lovely work as always.

This is fantastic Paula, I love your organic tangles inside that flower and the black pearlescent card shows it off really well

Lovely design Paula, the outlining on the inner petals really make them stand out from the lower ones. It looks like multi layers.

Beautiful! I can see this design used on a Christmas card, with a little alteration of the center, because it looks like a poinsettia too. Blessings!

Another stunning little creation Paula.
I agree with Arnoldo, it reminds me of a poinsettia and would be perfect for a Christmas card. The design also reminds me of 'blackwork' needlecraft. It's very eye catching and perfectly formed.
Love this Paula.

Big hugs
