Zentangle Doodling with Copics and a Birthday Card

Hi all, hope you are all well.

How many of you doodle when you are on the phone or sat thinking lol! Today I would like to show you my first time at Zentangle using Copic Multiliners available from The Mad for Markers Store. The colours are part of a set Cobalt, Olive, Sepia and Wine nib 0.3.

A Birthday card for Morgan's Birthday on Sunday he will be a teenager (13), that makes two in the house, going to be fun lol!  Now still not sure about the doodling, definately different lol!  Think the card is growing on me, just hope Morgan likes it.

Copics used to colour Surfer Ian available from the Mad for Markers Store

+ B0000, B000, B00, B01, B02 for the background around the sentiment, it looked too white

I would like to enter the following Challenges:
Copic Oz Challenge - Summer
Lets Ink It Challenge #19 - Anything Goes
Bizzy Bec's Store January Challenge - Anything Goes

Some of the Zentangle Doodling on the card

A Birthday sentiment

A flower using olive and wine

 A heart border using black

I thought I would colour the Birthday Greeting in bold colours that I wouldn't normally put together, which fits in with our New Colour Combo Challenge this month. Pop over and see what gorgeous coloured creations the DT have created as well as the gorgeous entries so far.

Copics and Multi liners used

Have you heard about the Copic celebrating 20 years in Australia, there is a reward system happening until 30th June 2012 for copic markers and refils bought they carry points, then you can choose a gift that reflects your points, I'm saving for this AWESOME Copic Carry Case
