Tangle of the week: Xav

I’ll say this straight off; I need more practice before Xav goes on any of my cards!

This is Xav, from Tickled to Tangle, and here is the tutorial.

I will not be showing my step-by-step, because it was not a pretty sight. I really need to work on getting my S-curves more uniform.

It’s quite a busy tangle so I don’t think it would be suitable for backgrounds on my cards, but I can see it looking quite good as a border. Or perhaps a wee square down in a corner, with a sentiment at the opposite corner. I shall do some experimenting and see.

What do you think of Xav? How would you use it? Let me know in the comments!
