Zentangle Elephant...

Wow!  Good for you, Lyn (from Spyder's Corner)!  I love Zentangles and I leaped at the chance to have your elephant!  Here is my card with your image.  Recipe is printed below.
TIP for TTT: Placing things on a slant or tucking them behind other elements will rescue a myriad of errors - from cutting something unevenly to stamping off center.  I'm not going to own up to the mistakes... I will let you find them!  LOL!
