Diva challenge #125 UMT Birdie Feet

I have not done a Diva challenge for a few weeks as I have been busy with the ICAD challenge. The challenge from Laura this week was a Use my Tangle, a new one I had not seen before called BirdieFeet. See the challenge here.

I tried to do something different for my first one I used the tangle in a similar way to IX. I also used it as a border of little feet.My scanner would not scan the entire border for some reason, it kept chopping bits off! Grr


'

The second card I did something more symmetrical. I liked using the tangle on the border in a small version and then much larger for the main pattern.



I wasn't sure about this pattern when I first saw it, but once again I have been put out of my comfort zone and enjoyed the process, thanks Laura.

  2. What a great idea to use the pattern as the basis of your drawing and then tangle around it. Both of your drawings are very nice.

  5. You really made the tangle outstNding. How clever to use it as a string in the second tile, it gives it so much more dimension. I do love your creative solution with this tangle!

  6. I really like your treatment of this tangle. I almost didn't recognize it in the border of the second one. There's great symmetry in both of these tiles, and they are my favorite so far.

  15. I just love these. I ♥ the second one. It highlights the pattern and uses it as a string. I thought of rune stones too.
