Inlaid Pattern in Eights

I keep discovering byproducts of my tools that allow new geometric effects.  For this design I started with a black and white checkered design and transformed it into a pattern of eights in black and white.  Then I went back and colored the checkered design, using dark colors for the black panels and lighter ones for the white panels, and transformed this into a pattern of eights (a composition of eight different eight sided figures).  So now I had a colored and a black and white version.  Then I used the black and white version as a mask to create an inlay effect in the colored version — the dark colors seem to be inset and the light colors stand out just a bit — enough to catch the light on their edges.

Somewhat like a fantastically complex wood puzzle, no?
