Joey's Challenge #102, and the Diva's #257

The string for Joey's challenge this week 
is a tilted Roman Numeral II
and the tangles chosen are:
Flux, Hi-C's, and Japonica 

This is what I came up with:
It's perhaps a little overshaded, but it'll do.

Take a look at Joey’s site to see the other entries, 
and maybe try one yourself. 
This week, Amy Broady, CZT™ from Knoxville, Tenneessee, 
is the guest host for the Diva's Challenge.

Her challenge is to make our tangled work shine! 
Or gleam. Or glint. Add a special touch. 
She charged us to include a METALLIC feature 
in our tangled art this week. It could be bold or subtle, 
a major feature, or a finishing touch.
 I used metallic gold and silver uni-ball pens,
which show up well on the black tile. But unfortunately, 
the shine doesn't scan very well. I guess it's probably because 
in the scanner there's no light to reflect the metallic look. 
You'll just have to take my word that it does in fact shine.

Be sure to visit the Diva's site to see the other wonderful entries; it's amazing how different all the responses are. Maybe you'll be inspired to try out one of the Challenges yourself.


  1. I had trouble getting the metallic pens to show on photos too and it's really annoying when I know they shine so well in real life. i like the idea of the monotangle on black, it really emphasises the contrasts.

  2. We all can imagine how shiny this beautiful tile is, Audrie, since none of us were able to really capture it as well as we hoped. Very nice on the black!

  3. I love the flow between Japonica and Hi-C's in the first tile. I had the same problem with scanning metallic inks for Ooh! Shiny! I sympathize!

  4. I like the two forms of Flux on the top and sides of the Roman numeral. The gold and silver does stand out on the black tile although I know in real life it will be a lot shinier

  5. Beautiful tiles! I love the HiC`s variation!
