White Ink on Black Tiles

I am a fan of white ink on black tiles -- I love those beautiful black tiles!  However, I have not found a pen with white ink that I simply adore -- until NOW!  

Let's review some pens with white ink -- Sakura Gelly Roll, Sakura Glaze, Pentel Sunburst Gel, Pentel Slicci (which I like, the line is smooth and fine but I haven't found it in white, just silver), and Uni-ball Signo (which I love but the line is so not fine).  I will let you fend for yourself Googling those pens as I want to focus on my new favorite white ink pen... by Uni!

As indicated by the name... I am in heaven! It is the beautifully smooth flowing ink that is signature to Signo but with a 0.7mm tip, the line is thin and more perfect for any detailed tangled tile!  

After a bit of searching, I found JetPens offering it at a reasonable price... $2.00 per pen.  JetPens offers an amazing selection of pens which I haven't investigated yet... if you find one you like or if you have another white ink pen that you can't live without, please share!

I did find this pen most intreging yet too expensive and perhaps even too sophisticated for my simpleton means of tangling.

What is your favorite white ink pen???

Labyrinth - DC 215

A labyrinth is a maze-like design or structure with an unambiguous route to the center and back; unlike a maze, it is not difficult to navigate.

Instructions as to how to draw a labyrinth are plenty on YouTube... this video makes the drawing of a labyrinth fairly simple and straight forward.  

Incorporating a labyrinth was the challenge presented by the Diva this week.  Here is my tile...

On a more personal note; it has been a long time since I have done a Diva Challenge.  Thank you Jean for the motivation!
