Zendala Dare #56 - Pencil

 The Bright Owl, this week set a nice challenge for us. She gave us the template and said that it must be done in pencil only. Being the first challenge of the month, this is a special one. First of all, I loved the template but I had to tweek it a little.

I used only a mechanical pencil for all line work and shading; oh and a blending stump to smooth out the lines.

The tangles I used were flubber, flower vine, cruffle and the middle circle is querl.

What a super tile, this is very nice and your shading is great.

Like your border and the shading. How did you keep the white spaces so white?

Keeping it in pencil was a challenge what with parts of the paper and my hand getting dirty. For some reason the scanner did not pick up the smudges around the edges of the tile.

I love this! Very different and beautifully done! Thanks for listing the names of your tangles - it helps and inspires!
