Black and White....and Blue

I love the color challenges, and this week's Play Date Cafe' Challenge is a wonderfully simple one:  black and white with a "splash" ......of blue.

The blue on my card is the giant flower from Hero Arts colored with alcohol ink. "Imagine" is from Stampers Anonymous. (Dribble 2 or 3 drops of alcohol ink on glossy cardstock; add some blending solution and tilt paper for coverage.  Add more solution, if desired.   Dry completely.   Stamp image with permanent ink and cut out.  I also added black microbeads to the center with some Glossy Accents as adhesive.)

You seem to be able to do so much with alcohol inks. Thanks for the info you gave--ink first, then stamp..I get confused, so happy you share this.
It is a beautiful card.
