Whachadoin' Wednesday & SUINK Sneak Peeks

Good Morning! It's Wednesday, which means it time for another WHACHADOIN' WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE at Storage Units, Ink & More. This week's challenge is to make a card using RED, WHITE, & BLACK. You can use any theme you wish, but no other colors can be used. You can, however, choose your shade of red. So, do you want to play along? If so, check out THIS post for more information. If you upload your creation to SCS, remember to use keyword SUINKWWC25.

I have to say that using just red, white, and black was a lot harder than I thought it would be. But, that's why they call it a challenge, right?!? The envelope and mailbox are from the WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE set by Storage Units, Ink & More. And, I have to admit that I cheated just a little bit (shhhh). I used my C-1 Copic Marker to highlight the images. I colored the hearts in with a Copic Marker and (even though it's really hard to see in the photo) I added StarDust Stickles to both images. I used Choice Snow White cardstock, Prism Papers Classic Red, and the some black and white Doodlebug patterned paper that I had in my stash. The red and black sheer polka dot ribbon is from Michael's and I added some red rhinestones to the bottom. Don't forget to check out the Storage Units, Ink & More BLOG for more cards for today's challenge.
