A Zinger of a String

iamthedivaczt
This week's Diva Challenge was to use Maria Thomas' tangle Zinger! This is one of Maria's go-to tangles, one she uses frequently but had never named it until recently.
Tangle Patterns' string 027 was shared by Courtney Frantz. Being a little time challenged this week, I combined the two - the Diva's and the String. The above tile was made using Courtney's string, although it's turned counter-clockwise one rotation. Fun string, I will be using this one again.
I really like the Zinger tangle and I'm still trying to get it just right.  So I figured a little more practice was in order. And this tile was so fun! Hahaha! I love it! You can find the Diva's challenge here and you can check out Tangle Patterns string challenge here.

  2. I really enjoyed seeing your tiles. I love organics, whimsy and color and I'm fascinated by the beauty of your interpretation. I loved the little "Suessy" characters too. Great idea!

  4. These are both lovely but my favourite has to be what I immediately thought of as worms with hats, brilliant.

  9. Both tiles are great. Love the colors in the first one and how you put the tangles on the string. But the second one really stole my heart. It looks so funny, those little guys with zinger hats. Especially the one with the glasses looks so happy. Great piece.

  10. Your tiles look great. I like your color, I am still experimenting, I still like to do black and white best. Love the second one, cute.

  11. Both tiles are great but I have to admit I prefer the first one. Did see "Waldo" and like the different creative style in each one.

  12. Both tiles are great but I do prefer the first. It probably has more traditional tangles. They are hard to compare because the creativity in both is so different. I did see Waldo.

  13. Both of them are really cute. Clever hiding Waldo in the second one. I like the way you colored them.
