Nevertheless I had a try for the challenge and used Gourdgeous with Gumleaves, Pokeleaf and Tipple.
Edit:- After visiting your blogs I was embarrassed and determined to try harder. I thought maybe I had learned a few things, especially about the stem area. I practised it in my sketch book, then tried it in a string surrounded by other tangles. It didn't really 'click' with me but finally I thought I could improve on my first one and redid it in Halloween pumpkin colours.
