Diva Weekly Challenge #208: "Duotangle - Cubine vs Pokeroot"

For last weeks Diva challenge #208 we are to use only two tangles: Cubine and Pokeroot. Both tangles are Zentangle®-originals. These were fun tangles to draw. I decided to combine the two patterns into one by putting an individual Pokeroot inside of each cubicle of Cubine. Pokeroot reminded me of cherries, so I decided to add color to my tile. I used a Chameleon Color Tones pen set that I had received as birthday present from my friend. I had a blast experimenting with color blending and shading. These pens are amazing! They each have their own color infuser and mixing chamber. Once the nibs are infused, the pen distributes the color in smooth blends from light to dark. Each pen has two different nib choices: brush and bullet; both are replaceable. The pens and mixing chambers are refillable too. :)

Pens:  Crimson Red (RD4) and Royal Blue (BL6) both from the 5 Pen Primary Tones Set by Chameleon Color Tones, permanent alcohol ink pen system; Sakura Pigma Micron pen (.01) in black; Sakura Permapaque pen (1.0) in Gold
