Diva Challenge #238: " UMT- Tri-bee by Beate Winkler, CZT"

Was not sure if I was going to get to the challenge this week. I usually try to do the UMT Challenges because it gives me a chance to try some new tangles. This challenge also gave me an opportunity to work on some things that will be doing in a class a little later this month. The class is on adding color but will doing it with water color washes and alcohol inks. I have used water color washes before but never used alcohol inks. This is my first experience with Dylusions ink. Did not turn out too bad but did not get a really good balance between the two colors. I did a regular white square tile and a Renaissance Zendala® tile. The later is the one that I used for this challenge. The red is not quite as overpowering as what it is on the white tile. Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.





Tangles used: Tri-bee, Flux, Featherfall, Zinger, & Scroll Feather
Highlighting and shading was done with an 01 Micron that is low on ink. Have never done this before, but I like the effect.  

Have not had a chance to look at what others have done. Hoping to get a chance to look at them. Are usually some great pieces of art. If you have not looked at them, go to I am the Diva and look at what others have posted. Would also encourage you to try it your self, even if you do not post what you  do. It is about the process for you, not the end result. 

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

Go Tangle !!
