Time for a cuppa

Starbucks cup embellished with the tangle Cyme. I used a Sharpie fine marker for the wide lines, and a Faber Castell permanent "S" for the finer lines. The shading was created with a Copic colorless marker which "melted" the existing lines so I could pull the diluted ink into the white areas.

Diva Challenge #226: Simplicity

CM-Hollibaugh-Fescu

Laura (Iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com) has a guest blogger this week, Katie Cromwell, CZT. We are to use two or three tangles and stop sooner rather than later. I chose Crescent Moon and Hollibaugh, and Fescu has a way of appearing in many of my tiles. I added the dark stripes in one of the Hollibaugh boards for balance.  There are a few more places where I’d like to add more, but in the interest of Simplicity, I declare this tile complete!
