Walnut Emboss

This was my second emboss project for printmaking class at Xavier.  I wanted to do something that had texture and that would recede and protrude.  So I decided to do two walnut halves.  As I was cutting the walnut texture out of cardboard I happened to lean it against my sewing machine and it made the coolest shadow.  I almost wanted to keep it just like that but I had to glue it down to make more layers for the emboss.  Part of the assignment was to make a colored version and I am not quite done with that but will post when I finish.  I ♥ embossing!
