Since I have a particular delight in bees I wanted to use the bee images from Chocolate Baroque's Honey Bee stamp sheet as the basis for my Zentangle Inspired Artwork (ZIA) interpretation of the challenge. I know that Zentangle is intended as art of an abstract nature but I couldn't resist creating a little habitat for my bees from Kass Hall's Honeycomb tangle (also demonstrated by Ellen Wolters in video format).
My edging is simply two wavy lines crossing one another with the segments filled in & the whole 3½ inch square tile is mounted onto a slightly larger piece of black cardstock.
