Artist Trading Card theme: Black & White

I made 10 of these for the Edmonton Calligraphic Society exchange this week & have a few left.
It's 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".

The background of criss-crossed lines is actually the inside of a bill envelope.
Everything else is pasted on.

The top ribbon is a strip of scribbled layered words that reads"blackwordsonawhitepage"
with a Sharpie outlining the strip.
"WORDS"shapes were arranged & cut from black paper & I used a Hiro 111EF pointed pen to write the Akim style of "black scratch on white". The word "divine" in copperplate style suits the delicateness of the flourished ribbon. I couldn't wait to use this roll of scrolled ribbon that I'd happened upon eons ago at the 2nd hand store for just pennies and finally found just the right project!
