Zendala Dare No. 20. I started with a splash background with a stamp pad. I used Vortex, Zebra and Verve and then went back into the Zentangle with ink from the stamp pad and my blender pen. The background technique is from the internet. You smear some stamp pad ink (they used distress ink) onto plastic, spray it with water then dab your paper onto that. You then dry the paper with a hair dryer and when the paper is dry you dab the paper back into the ink and then let it dry naturally. You get a two-toned effect. It didn't work as well with regular stamp pads as it did with the distress inkpad. This one was done with a regular stamp pad.
