An Inverse Scratchboard Design

I decided to try something new with this scratchboard and make it an inverse of my design.  To achieve this, I began with a black board and etched away all the background, leaving it a bit ragged for effect.  (This was hard on the hands!)
Then I brought some of the remaining black image down to gray by lightly etching some of it.  Highlights were etched more deeply to white.  Voila.  It looks very nice framed.
