Thanks to Donna and Laura!
Happy tangling.

" No Strings Attached " - Challenge #97

The Diva dug deep into her bag of tricks to find a  fabulous theme for this challenge!  Many tangles can be penned without a string.  Conversely, many patterns need some sort of string-type-linear-chaperone in order to keep the pen on the right track!   

I usually start in a corner when doing a stringless tangle on a traditional tile.  But for this shape and size, my pen wanted to start in the big empty space in the middle.  And so it did!

I had so much fun with the first one - black on white.  Would white on black be as much fun???  You betcha!

ZIAs- White Bristol & Black Cardstock -(approx. 3" x 8")  Sakura Micron Black #01; Sakura Gelly Roll White Med.; graphite shading
Thanks, Laura!

Happy Tangling.
