New Product, New Tangles, and Diva Challenge #180

It has been a rough week. A summer cold in Florida is not the way to spend a few pleasant days. Trust me on this one. So I am trying to fight my way back to being healthy with a little tangling. 

This week's Diva Challenge is to use Anneke van Dam's new tangle MacDee
I was thinking MacDee would be a perfect background to another new tangle I wanted to try out - nymph. Melinda Barlow's new tangle nymph is similar to 'nzeppel - only fancified :). I really love how it turns out! You can tangle singles or tangle in clumps. You should give it a try! Here are Melinda's steps to nymph.
So I combined the two tangles and used a tile that I had pre-misted with Lindy's Stamp Gang's new Moon Shadow Mist. The color I used is named Phantom Fuchsia. If you haven't heard of these you can check them out at www.joggles.com - that's where I get mine. Moon Shadow Mists are walnut ink based with a glimmer of shimmer that comes from mica. (Unfortunately, the glimmer-shimmer-awesomeness did not photo well. Sad day.)
So. As promised - one new product, two new tangles, and Diva Challenge #180 - √.

  4. Like your tile. Will have to try Nymph. I love 'Nzeppel. This looks like a great variation. Like the background on this even if the sparkle does not show up.

  5. Your tile is gorgeous; MacDee and Nymph (yes, I'm going to try that one today) are GREAT together. I hope this Moon Shadow Mist is available here in Holland.

  6. Lovely, before I read your post I thought you had used coffee. Beautfiul, Nymph is the perfect tangle to TANGO with MacDee. Lovely work, I need to try some of the moon shadow mist. It has that wonderful organic feel. Thanks for the 3-some!
