|an ancient bridge, a weeping tree|
I had finished putting the tipple and shading and perfs (?) and was clicking around online, when I serendipitously found Uncorked on Adele Bruno's site Tickled to Tangle (where It's a String Thing is housed) It was just too much: a U pattern not in tanglepatterns.com, that just happened along when I was looking for U patterns for a challenge!
So I threw them in, like shiny aloe vera plants on the edge of the bridge.
Also used a little bit of flux and cabu (not sure of the name) as embellishments on the top left corner. It is a pleasing piece that I liked making, and fun to look at.
