Challenge #12 "Something Blue"

When I sat down to do this week's challenge,  I was thinking about the beautiful blue, almost turquoise, water of Jamaica.  An island where they say they have no problems, only situations.  YA MON!  It's a beautiful place, if you ever get the chance to visit, go!  Laura's (I Am The Diva) parents just returned from a vacation there.  So, this week's challenge is to do "Something Blue".  As I said, I was thinking I would do a water tangle, but I started flipping through some old tiles and I spotted, Stubs,  Sandra Strait's (aka Molossus) tangle.  I only used that one once and think it is a beautiful tangle, so before I knew it, that is what I was making and the rest just fell into place (so much for the water-LOL).  I used a Sakura glitter jelly roll pen on Stubs and used a color pencil to highlight the other tangles.  I loved having the opportunity to add a little color and will need to play with color more in the future.  Thanks again, Laura.  These challenges are a lot of fun!
