DIVA Challenge #268 - A bit-o-black

Last weekend I saw Margaret Bremner`s new tangle "Skye" on her blog and was fascinated by it. So I  tried to draw it today. First it was a bit tricky but then I realized how it works....
I started to tangle on a 15x15 cm white watercolour paper, just for fun.... When I decided the tile to be finished I found the new DIVA Challenge. 
The task is to use some more black than normally. I decided to use my tile which I just finished and to add some more black. And I realized that this was a good decision. 
Thank you, Laura, for this interesting experience!

                                     

This was the first attempt , without the black addition:
What a difference!

  7. What a great tile to add black to. Skye seems a lovely tangle and at first I thought the black in it was what you had done, then I saw the second one and what a difference!

  11. Yes, you are right. That black adds so much depth to the tile. Both are beautiful but the one with the black is so much more dramatic!

  13. Such a spectacularly splendid tile! Thank you for sharing both versions. The original is so lovely, you would have been justified to stop there, but you chose to push on to meet the Challenge. What effective evidence of how designs can be pushed to an even higher level of impact with a little more time, inspiration, effort, & ink! Wow.

  14. Hallo Simone :-) Deine Kachel sieht wirklich wunderschön aus! Toll, dass Du den Unterschied vorher/nachher zeigst - das schwarz steht der Kachel einfach super!
    Das neue Muster sieht auch toll aus, das muss ich auch mal probieren :-)
    Viele Grüße und noch eine schöne Woche,
    Sandra

  15. Hallo Simone, das sieht ja wirklich toll aus. Mit mehr schwarz wirkt dein Tile noch viel eleganter und eindrucksvoller. Und Skye hast du auch super hinbekommen. Ich hab es vor ein paar Tagen auch entdeckt und musste es gleich in meinem Skizzenblock ausprobieren.
    Liebe Grüße Tina
