Challenge #184 - Restrain Yourself!

Sometimes it is nice to have parameters to work with - and so, with that in mind, we're asking you to create using 

Restrain Yourself to
BLACK and WHITE and a POP of one color
(any one color will do nicely)

....oh dear, I went overboard with the colour and I think the pop is maybe the black!!

So I tried again, but I'm not sure this is quite right either.  Ah well, it's certainly a limited palette, and mostly black, so if Chat Noir can do it, you can too.

The Poobahs here probably KNEW I couldn't restrain myself to just one colour.  I'm sure they did.  They know me pretty well.  But I tried.  Having said that, that is the cool thing about us at Opus Gluei, we get to interpret the challenge theme as we want to.  And so can you!  But unlike me, I'll bet you CAN restrain yourself to black and white and ONE pop of colour.  I know you can.  My bad. lol
Deena here:  the girls have their dance recital on Monday night and then dance is over for the year (yeee haw)...can't wait for summer break...but with the end of the year comes all the thankyou cards that are for irish, tap, jazz, ballet, pointe and lyrical etc.. you get the point...anyway, this is what I came up with for the tap teacher and it happens to fall in line pefectly for this challenge...BONUS...:

Rosemary here and I went with white black and red as well, but my card is for a couple marrying who are very clean lined, modern, and not very fussy but they are very in love and I want to wish them many years of bliss with Happily Ever After.  I was thinking of a white bridal gown, string of pearls, black tux and a bouquet of beautiful red roses.  Ahhhh, love is grand!!!!

Just link your project below in the comments

Don't feel as though you have to restrain yourself - we want to see all of your
