Say it big - Izzy

My turn (Izzy) today for the Say it Big sample. I chose the Woodware Huge NOEL stamp and tought I would use it with zentangles. I have not been zentangling for long (last time was for the challenge letter O) but I really like it and thought these stamps called to be zentangled. 

I started by stamping the Noel onto a Crafty Individuals silk card using Memento black ink and cut it out. 
I then added the zentangles doodles in black and pink inside the letters.
For the background, I used the Crafter's Workshop Tiny Circles template to apply Versamark and then embossed with Crystal embossing powder. It gives a white on white  (glittery clear actually) shiny background. 

I used one of the Tando Creative Mini reindeer in the centre. Inked it in white (Brilliance ink), embossed with the Crystal embossing powder and added a touch of black on the edges.

I adhered the Noel word to the background with 3D foam squares, added the reindeer in the centre and stamped the sentiment on the left. 
I finished with mounting the white background onto matching pink and then on a black card.

I used
Woodware stamp: Huge Noel
Tando Creative Mini reindeer
The Crafters Workshop template: Tiny Circles

See you tomorrow
