Hi there everybody. I have done a bit more tangling and with more colour this time. I used the three tangles...Inaflux, Flux and Printemps.
I started with a piece of card a little smaller than my 6" square card and used a circle die cut of around about 4" diameter, and pencilled around it to give me the starting shape. I did the pod shaped Inaflux mapping out with a pencil where to put them around the circle for reasonably equal spacing before putting them in with my black 0.1 Micron pen. Once those were done I infilled with the leafy shapes of Flux, and then to the outside of the circle shape I infilled with Printemps using a gold fine line pen from a set by Emott, and then coloured the rest with my Inktense Pencils adding the colour and then used a waterbrush to move it around. I waited until the first layer was dry and then added some more of each of the colours to darken and create shadows, and then added more of a darker colour..could have been darker I think although in real life there is more contrast. I finished by using a pencil and a paper stump/tortillion to add shadows around the images and added a sentiment to the centre using Versafine Toffee Ink and heat embossed it with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.
Like with lots of tangles there are variations for the shapes and my pods would be better a bit more open and more like flower buds but then I have seen some which do resemble more the ones I have drawn though perhaps with a slightly bigger space in the centre, but nevertheless I like them. Not sure where this would be better as a masculine or a feminine card..let me know what you think.
Thank you for visiting me today and I hope to see you here again soon.
