The Diva's Challenge #179: Bijou

This is my answer to the weekly Diva's challenge - we were to use the new Bijou size to create our challenge - the size is 2" x 2" - not too big.  Since I don't have the pre-cut Bijou tiles, I created my own from white drawing paper and rounded the edges.

I selected Ole as my major tangle and I don't know the name of the other tangle I used..  I painted the reflections on the Ole using block-out white and the ink design is created with Micron Pigma black waterproof  pens -.005.

Nicely done.

Great Tile. Love your Ole. Your reflection highlights are very well done. More complex than just a white circle. Nice job.

David...after I finished, I then thought that it would look good with highlights, so then I painted them on...an afterthought, actually
Thanks for commenting.
