StampinB Challenge - Color Challenge

Our hostess this week for the Stampin'B's DT challenge was Joanne (a/k/a jojot), and we all know her favorite color combination -- red, black and white! So it was no surprise that these were the colors she chose for the color challenge.

This was a pretty simple card to make -- and I got to play with lots of new toys. I used a new Sizzix embossing folder for the background and the Nestabilities beaded ovals for the frame. After cutting and embossing the beaded ovals, I sponged the openings with SU Whisper White and then embossed with Detail White embossing powder. I added a couple more layers (one white and one red) before I added the top white layer on which I had stamped the image with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Then I added some red bling.

As this was a color challenge, I had to find a pair of red, black and white salt and pepper shakers. A friend of mine brought these back from London for me.
