CD 357 - Tic Tac Toe and an Ink Splattered Card

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge #357!

It's another Tic Tac Toe board! This time, the colours are not associated with any particular paper pack - they are just random colours selected from Close To My Heart's colour palette. 
Black and White are permitted but NO OTHER NEUTRALS are allowed other than what is shown on the board. 

I used the colours along the left side (Pomegranate, Ballerina and Glacier) along with the bottom row (Glacier, Peach and Sapphire). 

I went back to an old technique of ink with water (spritz cleaner also works) on a base. I don't have an acrylic block large enough to cover a card base so I had to remove a cover from a stamp platform to do this. I covered the platform with Ballerina ink and then added sections of Pomegranate ink. I spritzed the ink a few times with water and lifted the platform slightly so the colours would run together just a bit. I put it down flat and then put my white cardstock down on top of it. That was easier than trying to turn the platform over on top of the cardstock. The inks settled nicely on the cardstock and it took a while for it to dry. 

In the meantime, I stamped the flowers and leaves and coloured them using Touch markers. The flowers appear Peach although they were coloured with a light pink marker... I also coloured some sparkle flourishes and clear sparkles using the same type of markers. The sentiment was stamped using a combination of Sapphire and Pomegranate inks. 

Here is the card fully assembled. I love the Sapphire flourishes poking out from the floral grouping as they bring out the centre of each flower.
