I've been seeing a lot of doodles on Pinterest lately and have been amazed by many of the images. I've also seen the term zentangle which is apparently a more structured or organized doodle. So I figured I'd give it a try. I used a black gel marker and Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils. Go Hokies!

For this month's technique swap I used versamark to highlight one of the embossed chevron rows and then applied clear embossing powder. Then I stamped the shell background using the By the Seashore set and covered the image with a piece of vellum to tone down the dark color. The crab came from the same set and was cut out by hand.

This month's tag involved using a cameo or silhouette type image with a frame. I started with basic gray textured card stock and used a texture plate in my big shot to add a slightly raised grid pattern. I then embossed portions of the grid with black embossing powder. The silhouette and the frame were cut out of basic black cardstock with my silhouette. I then used several stampin' up! punches to create the flowers and the petals. I finished the card by sponging silver ink over the frame, the flowers and the rhinestones.

This month's technique involves embossing cardstock that has been textured with an embossing folder. A brayer was used to apply the versmark to the raised areas of the textured pattern. If you don't have a brayer you can carefully swipe the versamark over the raised areas before applying the clear embossing powder.
