Happy New Year...tangled

 

I hope your year is off to a wonderful start.  Dan and I decided to go with a Happy New Year card this year and per my usual, peace is the theme.  I cannot think of any better wish for our friends and family, or the world.  The dove is similar to one in the well-known Woodstock poster (as in Woodstock music festival, not Peanuts : )   I drew everything after starting off with a pale outline of the numbers, done in Microsoft Word. This Zentangle Inspired Art piece (ZIA) is tangled with what would fit when working on a small scale.  And of course, it is shaded, which makes all the difference.

Office Max did a quick print-job in black on my own Cryogen White paper - you may be able to see the slight sparkle of the paper if you click on the image to view full size.  I hand-colored green in the leaves with my trusty Stardust Pen ~ love them!  The card is simple and very me, and as we said inside...

May your year be filled with light and love.
