Challenge #118 Kuke

The challenge from the Diva this week is to use Katy Abbot's tangle "Kuke".  You can see her post here and instructions for her "cool" tangle.

My first tile was a literal interpretation of her discovery (cucumber on the floor) so it is Kuke on Florz. Haha! I used a tile I had colored with background techniques from Marie Brownings  Time To Tangle with Colors book this past weekend. This is a salty-splash background using TomBow markers and the colors were just right for a Kuke.

Since the "Y" in the string reminded me of a Tripoli Tangleation I used a black tile and Pentel Slicci pens in silver and blue to finish a second tile.  The Slicci pens are very smooth and a pleasure to work with.

  5. Like your green wash on the first. Also creative take on how she discovered the pattern by putting your Kuke on the Florz. Like your black tile. What size are those pens?

    1. Thanks Donald! The Slicci metallic pens are 0.8mm. That sounds large for what we are used to, but I think thats why it flows so nicely and the line does not *feel* that big

  7. Hi Debra! I love both of your tiles but the tripoli with the Kuke is especially nice. I always have a hard time getting tripoli to behave well.
