Craft Barn Alpha challenge

The end (almost) of another challenge of the fortnight over at Craft Barn. The letter is ‘Z’ with the added twist of a pearl! I took the easy route and came up with…..Zed!

Dictionary 08-16 Z with a pearl sig

And (?) I used four flat backed pearls!! I have had these pearls in my stash for years; I remember buying a job lot of them at a special price, they are all white ones as I can easily change their colour should I want to.

Materials used:

Computer generated Z

Fine liner black pen and Sakura gel pens

Stamps: Viva Decor Capital Alphabet

Studio G Alphabet

Unknown Alphabet

Letraset rub on alpha

Wooden letters from stash

Inks: Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers

Versafine Onyx Black


Thank you for looking x

  1. What fun! I like the zentangling on your main Z as well. When I first saw the thumbprint I thought you’d gone for Zees (as in ‘to catch some zzzzzzs’).

  2. This is SO well done. I really enjoyed the thought process behind it, too. I think it was perfect that you could dig in your stash and come up with those pearls. Great job.

    What a lot of Z… Feeling sleepy already! Great idea I might pinch it for the other difficult letter!

  4. Great entry, and love the entangles in the Z
