There are so many options for a black and white color challenge – the possibilities are endless. So let's get to it. Here's what I did:
This is a combination of paste embossing and Zentangle-ing. For the middle pear, place the Pear stencil (LL563) with the Opto-Checkerboard stencil (LJ915) on top on white card stock and tape all edges. Apply Glossy Black Embossing Paste (DGKP) and let dry. For the remaining pears, I traced the Pear Stencil on to white card stock and began Zentangle-ing. If you're not familiar with Zentangle, it was developed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, as "an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns." You can learn more about Zentangle here. Cut out each pear and assemble.
