You Light Up My Life with Fireflies!

I participated in a color challenge over the weekend, we could ONLY use the colors Dapper Denim, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, (those are all included in the 2016-18 In Color Collection) and also Basic Black and Whisper White. I interpreted Whisper White to include our Shimmery White card stock, and used that for my card:

I used only the Jar of Love stamp set on this card, without even using any of the jars! I didn't use the coordinating Everyday Jars Framelits on this card, but did you know you can get those in a BUNDLE with the stamp set for 10% OFF? Check out all the stamps you get in the stamp set alone...

To get the top and bottom wash on my card, I used an Aquapainter and some ink that I squeezed onto the lids of my ink pads. The Shimmery White card stock is not meant for watercolor, so I dabbed my first layer of washes with a paper towel to get most of the moisture off, then swiped a few streaks more of concentrated ink over the top to give it a little more depth. Then I used my Heat Tool on setting 1, to dry the Shimmery White card stock so I could stamp the rest.

I accented the firefly wings with Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details, and dabbed over the glow of the firefly with Clear Wink of Stella. Sometimes, it's hard to get a good picture of glittery, shimmery stuff, and I think this card looks way cooler in person :-) And finally, I ran the card base through the Big Shot with our new Seaside Embossing Folder...very subtle texture, since most of it's covered, but I think it was a good add. What would you make if you could only use these colors (plus black and white)?
