Tangled Elephant!

I've only entered the Clarity challenge once before. This month the challenge is "Anything Goes".  When my club envelope arrived with a stencil of an elephant as soon as I looked at it I thought it was crying out to be zentangled!
And a few days later here it is - not perfect tangling by any means but it is my first serious attempt at it. I cut a mask out to cover it then brushed Adirondack inks over it to form the background. Unfortunately it looks a bit wishy washy in the photo but is more vibrant in real life. I gave him a bit of bling with a rhinestone coloured black with a promarker for his eye then six more to add the finishing touch.

  11. Wow, this is so intricate. I've never done it but I like what you did. Did you stencil, then draw in all the patterns? It looks labor intensive but calming. It made a beautiful card.
