December challenge - Black and White plus One

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

********Black and White plus one********

So as the title suggests we want to see just the one colour along with black and white, please don't be tempted to add other colours as you entry is unlikely to be eligible. 

As always you can use any make of stamp and enter up to threw times, but we must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, it can be a stamped image/s, large sentiment or quote....... the one exception are Penny Black Stickeroos. But no digi images. Please note: 

If we do not comment on your entry it will be because it does not follow the theme, qualify under our rules, or because we are asked to sign in or provide additional data to comment. We do not want to be rude but we do want to be fair to those who do follow the rules.

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. If you would like to be one of the first to hear about new products from Penny Black please click here to join the free club, plus their Facebook is full of activity and news.
