Color Dare #256--Black, White, Pomegranate, Peacock and Juniper

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog post!  This week we are challenging you to use all and only the following exclusive Close to My Heart colors:  Black, White, Pomegranate, Peacock and Juniper.  Of course if you don't have these CTMH colors yet you can substitute similar colors so you can still join in on the fun!

My card features Birthday Sparkles sentiment, For You Darling flowers and patterned paper from Jack PML card.

My floral array was stamped with Black ink (I created a mask to get the three connected) and sponged with Pomegranate ink.  I didn't like how dark it was so I brightened it up by creating white dots with the Chalk marker.  I fussy cut it and dipped it into Versamark ink and embossed with Polysparkle Tinsel embossing powder (retired CTMH) to give it a glossy look.  Here is a close up photo:

Here is our color palette for this week's challenge:

  1. Love your floral technique, and how you distressed the two panels with the pomegranate giving it a dimensional look against the background. Very pretty.

  2. Fun the chalk marker on the flowers.
