B'dylan and Echoism on Dark

After a super intense week moving to a new home, I finally managed to sit down to create my first tile in the new place. It felt so lovely!!!! 

Last week's Shading Zentangle FB group challenge covered B'dylan tangle (deconstructed by Mary Beth Schoonover), while this week's tangle is Echoism.
