On my first two tiles I used a border and more-or-less cursive writing for the letters. The tile on the left I like better on its 'side' (the original bottom is on the left).

Next I thought I'd do one using the style of initials I use to sign my Zentangle tiles, even though they don't overlap. Then I had the idea to use Celtic (or uncial) style letters, which I think are quite lovely. With that one I took a bit more time with the string!

Then, having some new black tiles and white pens, and a new white pencil that's much better than what I had before, I wanted to attempt another black tile. I've found them trickier than I expected; it's almost like working in reverse. Here I used the white pencil to draw outlines of a block M and a block B. I used a blending stick on the white pencil "shading" (really, highlighting) and I like the softened effect but it's a bit hard on the paper!
