Diva's Challenge #236

This week, Laura challenges us to tangle on something unexpected, something you wouldn't normally tangle on. She used an old map, and had the highways as a string. Nice, I would have liked to use an old map as well, but I didn't want to copy Laura's idea ;-)

So, being Dutch and being used to see cows (black and white!) In the meadows, I chose to tangle on a postcard with a cow on it, after I had cut it in the right size:


When I started tangling, I noticed the card was quite smooth, it had a very tiny plastified layer. This made tangling on it pretty hard, because the ink disappeared sometimes and I couldn't really get grip on the paper. 

But hey: that's what a challenge is all about: challenges! :-)

  5. I laughed out loud when I saw this over at Instagram. I could imagine some of those poor people thinking you really grabbed a cow and started drawing on her. What fun!

  18. Of all the contributions to this challenge, I have to say the effect of this one was the most "unexpected". Just great!

  19. Excellent and very unique. I haven't come across anyone else who tangled on a cow yet. ;-) I'm actually a pretty big fan of cows. My college's mascot is a purple cow----of all things.
