Few color combos can outshine black and white for sheer drama. Every time a stamping magazine puts out a challenge call for black and white work, the results never disappoint . . .
. . . and then we have my attempt. I tried for a positive/negative effect on this one and am not real sure I succeeded. After embossing one large leaf with Black on White, and the other with White on Black, I cut them down the middle and paired opposite halves. It didn’t turn out the way I’d figured, but then that could be said of most of my work: to some extent, the outcome is always a surprise! I suppose it’s best when life isn’t too completely predictable . . .
