Add some red and Kassandra

The Diva´s challenge this week is bringing the color of red into our tiles. It is a beautiful challenge, I think we need some red today! 



I gave the red color to my own pattern Kassandra this time. The other patterns are Dex, Fescu and Fassett (Lynn Shelton Mead. The string is no. 125 in the library of Tanglepatterns.com.

About the pattern Kassandra: I made it about one year ago and the name is from our cat Kassandra. I studied her paws and made a lot of sketches on the pattern she had on her toes. I wanted to put it in focus on this tile today, because this is the day we knew would come but we didn´t want it to! She became 19 years old and she has been with us for 12 years now. When we brought her and her sister from the shelter of Stockholm we never belived they would be with us so long, because they were not in a good condition then. Bessie, her sister left us 13th of December 2013. And now Kassandra is gone. This tile is for her and we miss her deeply. She was beautiful into her last moment. 



This picture of her I took this morning. I had hoped the vet would tell us she could live for a long time yet, but that was not the case and deep inside we knew that.

A beautiful tile, I like very much the "moving" way you have drawn Dex, your Kassandra in the middle with the subtile touch of red is gorgeous!

The shine on the red is very effective too. i like the whole thing and the use of just a few patterns works very well.
