I'm playing along with Retro Rubber today - their challenge is Black and White 

RRCB 102

It just so happens that on my Facebook Group The Joy of Sets I have set up a Technique Challenge album and our first challenge was Black and White.  I have used an old Stampin Up set here called In this World and have used the image of the grid and the butterfly.

I don't actually have any black card stock in my stash so I improvised by adding a white layer and adding some Washi Tape at the top and the bottom.  The butterflies were cut with an old SU punch out of some Designer Series Paper which has black on it and I've added a few black embellishments.  The sentiment was one from my stash of stamps.  I thought this looked rather a sombre card.  I don't often use black so this really took me out of my comfort zone.

I'm also adding this into a new challenge I've found called Little Red Wagon which is asking for Washi Tape.

You Improvised nicely for this black and white challenge. You 'challenged' yourself nicely by getting yourself out of your comfort zone.

Great take with the Washi Tape- it´s a perfect replacement for Desginpaper.

Thanks for joining our "Stick it - use Washi Tape" Challenge over @ Little Red Wagon. I hope to see you back again soon !
