Light over Dark challenge - More Morris



These two tiles both use the same black cardstock - but they were photographed at different times of the day - and one used the camera's flash. I considered doing them again but I thought it would be more interesting to see how different lighting and camera settings can have such different effects.

They are my response to the latest challenge from 'the diva'. http://iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com/ I used a combination of white ink, white colored pencil and white chalk pencil. The first tile uses simple patterns and a basic string. I did like the effect I got! The second tile was done after I goggled William Morris images and looked at some of his fabric and wallpaper patterns.
