CHNC challenge 95: black and white and one other colour if you wish ...

... or you can cheat like I did and make a black and white card with a couple of other colours, as long as black and white are the predominant colours. Please go over and visit my CHNC challenge 95 for all the details and join in. I was overwhelmed by the support for last week's challenge - thank you so much to everyone who took part.

Today's CHNC challenge 95 is being sponsored by That Craft Place owned by Lisa Horton, who has an online shop and also a bricks and mortar one in Eastbourne. When we've been down in Eastbourne I've visited the shop and always come away delighted with my purchases.

For my card I've used a stamp that I bought there on my last visit - 'Merry Christmas, deer' by InidgoBlu. I inked it with Versafine onyx black and then heat embossed with detail black powder. I then edged with a red copic pen and mounted this on to a piece of black and gold Hunkydory foiled card, then on to a red card blank. I had intended to make the card black and white with a touch of red, but in the end I cheated and also introduced some gold, but I did keep it predominantly black and white.
