Fishing you ...

There he stands, draped in more equipment than a telephone lineman, trying to outwit an organism with a brain no bigger than a breadcrumb, and getting licked in the process.  ~Paul O'Neil, 1965 (Hahahaha – Only because my husband is back to fishing and this just cracked me up!)

Good Morning
Today starts a new Progressive Freebie Challenge at TheOutlawz Challenges. Each month we will send you a free digital image to use in the challenge. Once your creation is completed, upload it into the freebie challenge and you will automatically receive the next month free digi.  We will have one image per month so you have plenty of time to create a project using the image.

If you are not registered yet, make sure you are a member (It’s free) at the Outlawz Challenges Website, then email your name and email address to: 

This month, we actually had our choice of two images to play with created by the talented Jean Chaney.

As a Certified Zentangle teacher, she feels it is important for you to know that these images, while using some of the patterns of Zentangle are in actuality ZIA’s (Zentangle Inspired Art). The Zentangle® method is an easy to learn, relaxing and fun way to use structured patterns to create beautiful images. Do read more about this method from the founders of this meditative approach to art on their website.

I am using her image “Swish Tangled”

Image and sentiment colored with Alcohol markers.
Accents were added to the “Swish” image using glitter pens from Crayola :O)
Cardstock from The Paper Studio
Classic circle dies from Sizzix
Design Paper from DCWV (I think)
India Ink from Memories
Ink from Stampin Up!
Rhinestones from Recollections
Sand stamp from JRL Designs (aka CTMH)
Sentiments from Inkahootz!
Silver cardstock from Bazzill
Wave embossing folder from Sizzix

For more creative ideas from Jean, please check out her social media

Thanks fo stopping by!

Hope to see you over at the Outlawz Challenges where a new challenge starts every day of the week!(Hugs) Cara

Another beautiful card. I love how you colored your fish and used the glitter pen to give it some sparkle.
