Black and White with a splash of color

And I picked pink...
 I wanted a card that was fast and easy and had a simple wash of some pink.  I stamped this stamp from Studio Calico in black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I like to do that so the black lines are a little more intense and the black ink is stable when using other inks over it.  
 I used watercolor paper and then brushed on some Distress Stain inks.  This very simply colored the flower image and the background.  The larger flower has a matching solid stamp so I did stamp that in the same pink.  In order to future the white parts since that is part of two of the challenges I was following, I used some Copic white ink.  I also added some dots of black Liquid Pearls. 
 I also thought this colors in the card went along with the Card Concept challenge.
Here is the Just Us Girls challenge.
Plus the Frosted Designs challenge.
I also used the Time Out challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
