Wot???? No colour ??

Hello everyone,

and happy Stampotiqe Challenge Day ! It is Nellie's turn today and she challenged us to only use black and white. As you can imagine that is a real struggle for me as I love, love colour !
This is what she said :

"I challenge you to use only black and white in your project or card". 

Here's mine:

In the end I had fun making this postcard although it wasn't easy. I started with a piece of black card stock and heat embossed the script on it with extra fine white embossing powder by WOW. I made some flags by sticking black and white washi tape on card stock and cutting them into shape. I stapled these to the card with my tiny attacher. Next I stamped 'Checkers', and cut him out leaving a small white border all around so he would stand out more. I adhered him onto the card. 
Lastly I typed the sentiment, went around it with a fine tipped pen and adhered it to the card too. The black panel was then adhered onto a white postcard base. 

I only used two stamps for this :

Thank you so much for stopping by today ! I hope you will play along with us. You might just win a $30 gift certificate for the Stampotique Online shop HERE.
Just remember : NO digi's and only one entry per person per challenge. 
Good luck !
