Dad measures up!

Here is a card that my Stamp Club groups are doing this month. This month's technique is embossing resist. So, the tape measure image was actually originally stamped onto Very Vanilla cardstock, and then we go over the top of the image with an inked up brayer. The embossed image resists the ink, therefore stays the same color as your original cardstock - nifty - eh?
I'm testing out taking pictures in a black background instead of white. Which do you like better? It seems to me that the kraft cardstock now appears to have a bit of a pink hue to it when photographed on black? What do you think?
