DIVA Challenge 176 B.Y.O.B.

This weeks DIVA challenge is brought to us by another guest CZT, Amy Broady from Tennessee.  Amy is also a fellow classmate of mine from the 4th CZT seminar in Oct, 2010.  This week we were to bring our own beverage to our tangling and incorporate it on our tile, in whatever way we wanted.  I used some Celestial Seasonings, Black Cherry Berry herbal tea on my tile.  I don't care for this as a hot tea, but it is really refreshing as an iced tea in the summer.  First I tried just putting some on the tile with a spoon, and ended up just setting the tea bag on the tile.  You can see that it made a darker spot that I ended up leaving blank.  At first I really hated the color and the totally messy splash and almost tossed it, but decided to give it a try and see what resulted.  After I tangled, I added a light lavender water colored pencil for some shading, and a little red water colored pencil around the open part.  I wasn't crazy about the outside, so I added Printemps with a silver gel pen, and here it isThanks for the challenge, Amy!  It was nice to see your smiling face again!

  2. Isn't it funny how the best things often happen from something we were about to toss? I love your finished tile. The dark stained part left undone is perfect and the Printemps just sets the whole beautiful thing off!

  3. Wow! This is a fun one! I do like the color that the tea gave... That would not be a variety that I would pick looking at it in the store for drinking, but I can see how it would be great iced! I love the silver added on your tile, on the stain, it seems to anchor everything else somehow. Great BYOB tile!

  6. Nice way to use the stain. I like the Printemps border and your leaving a part of the stain untouched.
