My name in Duotangle

Laura is back from her break so this week she has set the challenge on her blog I am the Diva.  The challenge is to do a Duotangle using tangles which begin with our own initials.  So for me that’s L and B.

I love Laced and I use it a lot.  On the other hand I’ve never used Borbz so it seemed like a good time to give it a go.  I used another of my watercolour washed cards.


Recently I was made aware of a Facebook group called Ornation Creation. There are lots of templates on this page and new ones are posted on a weekly basis. The humming-bird template caught my eye and yesterday I copied and decorated it.  It made a change and maybe I’ll try out another template some time, but for me, for a sense of achievement, there’s nothing like starting from scratch with a blank piece of paper!

59That’s it from me, now I’m off to check out the Diva’s blog to see what everyone else has done with their initials.

    Indeed I am pverwhelmed by the simpleness of your tile. Borbz is great in combination withe lace. And the colorwash completes yor tile!

    Oh that is awesome! Love your Hummingbird too, Ben’s templates are great.

  7. Your initial tile is lovely on that soft background with the touches of color in the tangles too. Your hummer, beautiful!

    Great combination, Linda, for your initials…I have never yet used Borbz. I look at all the Ornation Creation templates but haven’t tried one yet. The hummingbird is particularly lovely – well done. Axxx

    I also love Laced and it is nice to see it with a different tangle. Well done. I also love Ben’s templates. Hummingbirds are special to me so I should hop over and download that one too. Yours is gorgeous!

    Wonderful Tiles. Love how you used Laced. Beautiful design. Great Hummingbird Tile.

  11. Antonine says:

    Really beautiful. I love how the Laced part could be seen as either openings in a top layer or beads on strings.

  12. Annemarie says:

    The way you connected these two tangles is great.

  13. Donald W says:

    Nice job at integrating the two tangles. Like the shading on lace. Probably would look more like an opening if did not have the line on the side and it was just shaded. I tend to see it as a bead also.
