Before I get to the tangle patterns or the bleedthrumanade (got lemons, make lemonade; got marker bleed-thru, make bleedthrumanade) I want to show you this cool stamp set that I won from Simon Says Stamp. If you are a crafter and don't follow their blog, you are missing out. They post new projects every day--tons of techniques and ideas, as well as introducing new products from different lines. And they have lots of giveaways!
I used some of the stamps over Copic markers to do the front of this bleedthrumanade.
I didn't go very far with the back. I started tinkering with this pattern that is very similar to Fohbraid. One I thought looked like foliage and one sort of like Foxglove...and then it turned into something else entirely, lol. By that time I decided not to choose a third name. Foh-liage is the main pattern and they are all tangleations from there.
I decided to quit filling in, so that the tangle patterns didn't get lost, so it isn't much of a bleedthrumanade.
How many variations can you come up, now that you see how it's done?
