sign of the times

I wasn't particularly inspired by this week's Diva Challenge - but I'd been sorting out my pens earlier today and spotted a couple of green pens I rarely use as they are a bit bolder than my preferred shades.  So I thought maybe a bit of green will do.


And it did.  I only used one green pen in the end (Zig Clean Color brush pen - 040 Green).  And a couple of newish tangles I've been playing with - D'rua which is almost a bit shamrocky, Y-chain which looks a bit snakey (like those St Patrick drove out of Ireland!) with a single band of a Shattuck/Zonked fusion. 

I looks a bit like a road sign.  Perhaps a sign telling me that I'm heading to the Emerald Isle even if I didn't intend to!

  1. It took me a moment to see the road sign, but now that you mention it, of course I can't stop seeing it. Road signs notwithstanding, your tile looks very elegant.

  3. Green isn't my favorite either, but I do love the contrast of the green against the black. I think this is a beautiful composition!

  6. I like that you used just the one colour, it somehow makes more rather than less. I like your patterns too and you've reminded me of a couple i want to use.
