challenge #172

Well I have to say that it's pretty fun
on the other side of these challenges!
Maybe I will have to call on more
guest challengers in the future?!

Thank you Ilse for a very fun challenge.
Like some of the others, I am not a big fan of
Auraknot but it felt good to challenge myself after
taking such a long break from tangling.
I really enjoy tangles like this that involve
rotating the tile for each stroke, it's very relaxing.

I wanted to jump right in rather than think it through first, so I rummaged through my drawer and found some extra swap tiles that were painted with sky blue watercolour paint.

And this is my completed tile!

I added a Tipple and Cheesecloth border and
 Printemps behind the Auraknot.

~ blue Staedtler triplus fineliner 0.3mm
~ white Uniball Signo pen
~ Prismacolor pencils
 ~ Prismacolor colourless blender

Thank you again Ilse, 
my summer is off to a fantastic start!
