Diva Challenge #185: Duotangle - Phicops vs Diva Dance

This week's Diva Challenge used two fun tangles, Phicops and Diva Dance. I knew fairly quickly what I wanted to do. As is my usual practice, I do not look at other entries until I have almost finished mine. The exception to this is a couple of blogs I follow in my reader. What a surprise to open up blogger and see two post with similar ideas to what I did. They were different enough, that I did not think about changing what I was doing. It just happens that one of the posts was from my sister, Tinkered Art, and the other was Michelle Beauchamp's. I am sure that there will be others that are similar but these were the two that I saw. As is the case with a number of tiles, shading was a challenge. I almost did not shade it at all but decided against that. The real challenge was Diva Dance. In general this is a tangle that I am not sure how to shade. Over all I was pleased with the results. Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.



Tangles used: Diva Dance and Phicops


I hope to have some time to look at all the other posts. The last time that I looked at the blog there were all ready a long list of posts. If you have not all ready done so, I would strongly encourage you to visit the Diva's blog to look at some amazing art. Try it your self since there are links to the stepouts for these tangles.

Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.

Go Tangle!!

  2. A lovely seaside, Donald. I like it especially because Kees and I are going to the sea tomorrow and stay there for some days.

  3. Very pretty composition. I like how the shading on the Phicops in the middle makes it look like it's in the spotlight. It is almost like the sea was parting to let it shine.

  8. Probably more surprising was me posting a challenge on Monday as I'm usually racing to get it done by Saturday! Like your take especially the movement of the Diva Dance at the bottom - very sea-worthy.

  12. Hmmm. I wonder if there's a genetic component to tangling. I'll look for the two you mentioned as being similar to yours. Maybe great minds just think alike :)
