April - Black and White plus one

Good morning and welcome to our April challenge where this month our theme is..............

******Black and White plus One******

The theme of your creations can be anything you want so long as it follows the colour scheme above of black and white plus just one colour of your choice (plus skin colour if appropriate).

As always you can use any make of stamp and enter up to three times, but we must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, this means:

Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest

The one exception is Penny Black Stickeroos, but strictly no digi images. 

As always we have some wonderful prizes to be won starting with three from Penny Black..............

Penny Black invite you to explore their creative world and see for yourself why their rubber stamps, stickers, beautiful papers for scrapbooking, cardmaking and stamp crafting are everyone’s favourites. Their products are designed to integrate style and colour for creating the best handicraft projects ever.
