Two colours and a button

Whenever I use black with white, I am always reminded of the debate as to whether

BLACK  and WHITE are colours, shades or hues!

In this instance, I am using them as colours.

Having scraps/offcuts left from building the basic for my “Newspaper” I thought to combine the fabrics and hope for a pleasing result.

In all three cards I employed a crazy patch technique, and added buttons in the same light and dark shades.

It is obvious the edges need finishing, and maybe a bit more stitching embellishment will also be added…..whether I try other colour combinations remains to be seen.
