Dragon's Dream TIO DT Piece - Z and a face

This time Silvia was at the helm for choosing the theme and I'll be honest, I struggled with the Z part, so I spent an hour rummaging through about 4 million sheets of paper (I kid you not) to find one with a Zig Zag pattern on which I backed my tag with, but it was a tad on the bright side, so I used a combination of Distress Inks to tone it down quite a bit, and a combination of stencils to add more layers to the background.  I stamped the face Using Indigo Blu stamps and Versafine Onyx Black and used Distress Inks again to fade into the face leaving that part white.

I know: I thought for ages about Z until 'zany' came to me in the middle of the night! This is such a lovely stamp and it goes really well with the distressing! Julie Ann xxx

great zig-zagging!! i love that stamp you used on top though.
I knew immediately I wanted to zentangle, what was hard was getting to the drawer where the face stamp was hiding!!
