Colour Challenge Week 218

A new month, a new challenge and a new sponsor.
We are delighted to welcome back
Clearly Besotted
as our sponsor for April and Stephanie is offering a £15 gift token as the prize.
Do check out the wonderful selection of stamps and dies in her store.
Our colour challenge this time is entitled 
Predominantly Black! 
Your whole card doesn't have to be all black and you may use a little of another colour, but whatever you add to your design, even if it's minimal, should be mainly black.
So think silhouettes, monochrome, ombre, chalkboard technique... there doesn't have to be a lot of black... if your design is minimal, it just needs to be the predominant colour.
We have some examples here for you as usual, but there is additional inspiration on each of our personal blogs. Click on our names to take you there, we're sure you won't be disappointed!

Here is a Memory Box keyboard die with part of a Spellbinders tag, I thought it looked rather like the music stand on a piano.
The sentiment is from Penny Black.

Here I've added a mini touch of pink with some Papermania gems
Card Recipe:
Altenew: Hennah Elements (first outing and I love this set!)
Clearly Besotted: Happy Birthday set (sentiment) heat embossed in 
Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.

Unity sentiment stamp white embossed and aiming for the chalkboard effect.  Memory Box butterfly diecut and some gems added.  I had intended to leave this card completely black and white but I much prefer it with the Distress Inked background to the butterfly.

We know that this is a real challenge, but we're sure you'll come up with some fabulous designs... we can't wait to see them!
Go for it girls (and guys)!
