Zentangle® a Valentangle, Flowerly, and Hollibaugh

Create a "Valentangle" is the challenge this week from I am the Diva. Since I am a cardmaker, this was fun. You can see the valentine I made for my hubby on my cardmaking blog, TangleStreetColorway.
For this card, I used some different heart tangles from Helen Williams and a few dangles. I used very sparkly gel pens (that don't show up in photos), a Copic purple multiliner, and a white gel pen. The heart is popped up for interest.
Square One, on Facebook, has a focus tangle of Flowerly by Ina Sonnenmaser. I added half of Verve and some Betweed.
And, this week's journal page has a bit of Hollibaugh fun going on. Have you ever tried doing Hollibaugh inside of Hollibaugh? I did that in this post from last year.
Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy reading your comments!

  2. Great idea to elevate the heart a bit... Creates lovely dimension and really shows off your lovely tangling and design. Your sketchbook page and Square One submission is elegantly beautiful as well!

  5. A beautiful card with soooo many hearts inside. Your husband will love to see how many hearts you are sending to him! Again, for me, a new tangle: Flowerly, very nice drawn. Hollibaugh is one of my favorites and I like Hollibaugh in Hollibaugh! Have a nice evening dear Jean!

    1. Thanks, Annemarie. I think Flowerly will be fun to play with more. Just hope I remember to do so, LOL!

  15. What a wonderful Valentangle. I too love your use of purple for the heart. I haven't heard of Flowerly. I'll have to look at that one some more. Looks fun. I really like Hollibaugh but forget to use it. These that you did in your journal look wonderful. And your Hollibaugh within Hollibaugh is so much fun. Great one to try out.

    1. Isn't it strange that we forget to use some of our favorites, Melena? For me, I think it's because I have tooooo many favorites!
