Acrylic Ink Background

I started this tile at the Wednesday painters then finished it at home.  It has an acrylic ink background.  I didn't do much shading as I figured it would take away from the colour wash in the background.

Watercolour Card # 4

This is the fourth watercolour card I have done.  I have 6 more to go because I bought a package of 10.  Yesterday I went and sat in with the Wednesday painters in town and this is what I did.  I used watercolour pencil crayons for the colour.

Diva Weekly Challenge # 186

I have a template for a leaf shape so used that 3 times.  I used Tagh, Flukes, Baton and Betweed.  The leaves in my area haven't started to change colour yet so I used a lot of green, starting with a green watercolour background tile.   The challenge this week is called "String Theory - Leaves! Leaves! Leaves!"

3 Flowers Card

I had previously drawn these flowers so decided to put them on one of the watercolour cards that I had bought some time ago.  I will try a few more with this theme.  I may do the watercolour pencil crayons next time.

Diva Weekly Challenge # 185

The Diva Weekly Challenge this week is a duo Tangle - Phicops vs Diva Dance.  I started with a tile that I had put a wash on with acrylic inks.  This seems to be a variation of Phicops as the right sides are folded under at a different angle.

Diva Weekly Challenge # 184

This challenge was to draw the new Official Tangle ING by Molly Hollibaugh.  I drew two of them then added some rounding.  I filled in the background with Hollibaugh with Zingers on the ends.  I then added Printemps, Tipple and some lines and back in some of the shapes.  I added some Fescu to the stems of the Zingers.

Diva Weekly Challenge # 183

I drew this tangle correctly in my sketch book but then when I was doing it on the tile I somehow got it wrong  I continued with it anyways and this is what I ended up with.  I will have to try it again.  I haven't been Zentangling lately so will have to try and get back some of my enthusiasm.
The shading is done with sepia and brown conte and the background for the orbs is done with a #1 brown Pigma micron pen.
