Being a button lover I would have to say that this is one of the coolest teapots. You'll have to read the story that goes with it here.
Our challenge was to make a round card. I had picked up these scalloped circle cards in the dollar bin at Mike's a few weeks ago to use to practicing my tangling, so I decided to use both the scallop and to tangle the background for my card. The story refers to a designer dodgeball and I seem to remember those dodgeballs from gym class having a ridged texture to the surface (although they were usually that pinkish-red color). This is what inspired me for my background, but in black and white. I added the Summer Sun pieces and the colored buttons to give it some punch. The black and white buttons are actually stamped with the Button, Button stamps.
When your tangling you build your pattern from the top to the bottom, or rather from the front to the back. You see the spirals that look like they are closest to the top are actually the ones that are drawn first. The rest are added behind them. The depth comes from adding the pencil shading. Pretty cool, eh!
Here's another Zentangle card that I did recently. This one is several ways to do spirals (including more of those that I used for the Teapot card this week). You can click on it to see the detail better.
Now, I will go and check out the gallery. Click here to join me.
Oh, and I'm going to have another round project to show you in the next day or so.
