Zentangle Challenge #72 - Crescent Moon

This week's Zentangle Challenge from "I am the diva" (www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca), is to create a monotangle tile or ZIA using the tangle Crescent Moon. I used the template from week 3 of Erin's Zendala Dare (see www.thebrightowl.blogspot.ca), and got carried away... I originally thought I'd keep it simple but .... (Note: I couldn't bring myself to submit for last week's challenge which was to use the tangle "pea-knuckle". I tried for several hours but could not get that tangle to work for me. I loved many of the versions that were posted, but it seems I've found one of those tangles that just confounds me. I may give it another try but I'm reminding myself that, like books, you don't have to love every one and it's ok to just move on! Right?)

Fantastic!
And yes I agree, so dramatic!

The dark background and your shading just make this a fabulous piece. I love it!! And, yes, I agree about not having to love every tangle. As people seem to be coming up with more and more complicated ones I came to the sam conclusion. I don't want to lose the "zen" from zentangle. LOL

I had the same trouble as you with "pea-nuckle". Just couldn't make it look good. Crescent moon was one of the first I learned and I thought it was too simple. Now I've learned to see it's value...and to love the simplicity.
Crescent moon sure doesn't look too simple in your rendition- it's beautiful and has everything going for it.
