DC#257 Oooh Shiny

iamthedivacztThis week’s Diva Challenge is by a guest, Amy Broady. The challenge is to include a metallic feature to our tile this week.

At first I didn’t think I had anything to meet the challenge. I thought about some metallic pens I have but they never seem very metallic to me. Then I remembered the scratch and sketch tiles I got for Christmas in 2014. I have gold metallic, silver metallic, and rainbow colored. I had not yet tried the silver foil ones, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to do so.

The next decision was whether or not to use a string and what tangles to use. I decided to use a very simple string and tangles I could recall easily. I think the one in the upper right hand corner is shattuck. Then I decided to use Finery or at least, my attempt at finery in the lower left corner. From there I wanted something simple, not intricate, so I went with Kuke. I like Kuke but haven’t used it in a long time. This isn’t completely kuke, as I had to adapt it a bit for use on this scratch off tile because I cannot shade on this tile or at least, can’t do it very easily. Then I just went with ahh or something similar in the upper left corner. I did it from memory but haven’t used it in ages either, so I probably didn’t draw it completely correct.

I remember from the last time I tried to scan the foil tiles that they neither scan well nor do they photograph well. Consequently I took several pictures and am putting the best ones up. This first one is with the flash but as you can see it doesn’t show up very good. I include it here so you can see that the foil is actually silver. ;)

It is hard to take the picture without the flash because you have to hold the camera very still and I’m not very good at that but here are a couple of my attempts to do so.

Here is one more without the flash, although a bit blurry.

I appreciate you stopping by. Thanks in advance for any comments. I think sometimes I sound harder on myself than I am and am thankful to the commenters for their encouragement. :)

Until next time, God bless,
