Challenge #60 - Duo Tangle v.III Cirquital/Munchin

Wow.  Two tangles I've never used before.  Sometimes I am really not up the challenge of using new tangles or using only one or two specific tangles.  I almost passed on this one.  But then I saw a technique on the Pinterest boards that piqued my interest.  I am including a picture of it here because the visual is better than any explanation I could give:


So, anyway, I was thinking about the challenge and got the idea to use an outline of my hand for the challenge. The original intent was to color it with this technique but I had the forethought to scan it first. 

I printed out a copy and colored it - and hated it.  I thought, "maybe it's because I don't have much of a border around the edges (I used a Strathmore 5x7 Drawing Card)."  So I decided to draw another string, use the same challenge tangle patterns and then color it.  I'm still not fond of the results - and I forgot to scan the black and white version first.  


I understand the concept.  I just didn't achieve the effect I was hoping for. I will keep practicing.  Until then - Happy tangling!

Love the hand done with these two tangles! Hands are so much fun! Thanks for sharing the idea with the stripes giving definition to the hand... might have to play with that idea on my own - it's cool!

So very clever! I've been wanting to tangle my hand for a while. That may be this evenings project. Well done.

Wow! I really love your black and white version with your hand! What a neat idea!

Clever and so accomplished! Love the combo in the hand; I think the color stripes in the second one detract a bit from the tangling....it's hard to see your great lines, but I like the concept a lot. I admire you for trying different ideas!

Lots to see and think about here. I love how you've been experimenting. That stripe technique is fascinating. I'm going to give it a try also.

Love the tangling in your hand! It looks great.
