little black numbers

Two tiles and my very literal take on this week's Diva Challenge.


No shading, no colour.  Just black ink.  And just one tangle on each tile.  On the left Bumps (by Sue Jacobs) and on the right the offical tangle Assunta.

Very different from my usual offerings, but different is good sometimes.  They look like burns or bruises, like new tattoos.  They look like the tangles have been cut out of the paper.  They look quite serious.

  1. You're the only one I've seen so far who did monotangles. I think you're right, they are reminiscent of tattoos or cut paper designs. I think this worked especially well with the Burnips.

  2. Serious, right, no messing with these tangles. They also look like wood cuts. Very nicely done!

  5. Great work, I don't know which I prefer, both are so good. They look like the silloutes that my father used to cut out of black paper.
